Explore Your City with an Urban Adventure Quest!

This post is in partnership with US Family Guide and Urban Adventure Quest


Explore Your City!

If you’ve been a reader of my blog for awhile you might know that I am a huge fan of being a tourist in your own city. I say this especially for military families. Embracing where you are can sometimes help combat any of the negative feelings that you have about your duty station. Having been in places that are rural and pretty desolate before, I get it when it sucks! Urban Adventure Quest is one way that you can explore your city in a fun way, and also provide any visitors with some fun as well. Its also something I will keep in my back pocket for vacations!

What is Urban Adventure Quest?

The idea for Urban Adventure Quest came from the favorite tv show of its creators, the Amazing Race! Wouldn’t it be fun to go on your own amazing race in the comfort of your own city? The answer is of course yes!! Get a quest, go on the stops, complete the challenges and score points! Create your team of 2-5 people and embark on your own three hour tour {insert Gilligan’s Island theme music}. Because the owners love adventures as much as their customers they take their creations seriously. They want to create quests that they themselves would enjoy.

Where is Urban Adventure Quest?

UAQ has over 50 quests available! Some cities have more than one type of adventure available to you. From Sacramento to Boise, Baltimore to Dallas, UAQ is growing!

They are also afforable, and I will be adding them to my Free and Cheap in DC list. You can purchase an adventure for up to five people for $49, $30 for a mini-quest. They also offer a rather large 25% military discount. All you have to do is call to receive a promotion code, which I can handle for sure. For schools and non-profit groups they offer 20%, no matter how many teams you purchase. I love a company that gives back like this. Its something that I want to support and encourage others to support as well.

DC/NoVA Adventures – Madame Tussauds *sponsored post*

If you’ve never been to a wax museum they are a pretty cool adventure.  We have visited several, including Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas.  We haven’t taken the kids yet, and I’m super excited to experience it with them.  How do you explain, I mean really explain that to a five and seven year old.  Explaining it to Phillip obviously isn’t going to happen; and if our experience with the Easter Bunny is any indication it might not go super well.

If you are visiting Washington, DC or call this area your home Madame Tussads is a fun little check mark to make on your way to completing your DC experience.  For those that call the DC Metro area your home did you know that MT’s does birthday parties?! Say what?!

You can help your child celebrate their birthday with their favorite celebrities, like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez? How about The Rock or Beyonce. Book their next birthday party at Madame Tussauds Washington, D.C.! With three all-inclusive packages to choose from, we’ll help your child celebrate like never before. Whether you’re child wants a red carpet affair, the presidential treatment, or the whole ball of wax, we’ve got the perfect party package just for them!


Right now I also have a special little deal for you all!!

ICE! at Gaylord National Harbor

This year the hubby and I took the kids to see ICE! at the National Harbor.  Normally this is a pricey event, but we were able to snag a special deal on LivingSocial.  It was a truly fun event and the kid’s had a blast.  Although I don’t know that it is necessarily worth the full price.  It’s a really hefty price tag for a couple rooms of ice, even if it is truly spectacular to look at.  They do offer a military discount, and Phillip was free!

This year’s theme was Twas the Night Before Christams
