Obscura Society

Multiple Neighborhoods

by Jill

You never know where you may go next with Atlas Obscura/the Obscura Society, a multi-city exploration group that delights the curious with rare glimpses into urban places and hidden city treasures. Examples of past events include "Afternoon in the Garden of Alcatraz," an opportunity to get your hands dirty in the former Prisoner Gardens and "Shipwrecks, Fortresses and Hidden Labyrinths at Land's End," an activity with self-explanatory appeal. Sign up for the email list to be notified of upcoming events and/or check their website frequently.


Stop Highlights:

  • Don't despair if there is no organized trip to your choice of location - the Atlas Obscura website also features profiles of curiosities around the world so you can explore places on your own. So go forth and find that Latvian Prison Hotel...
  • Check out Field Trip Day, an associated project with events in six cities. The first FTD is on September 29, 2012. www.fieldtripday.com

Know Before You Go: Some events do sell out so get in early.
