What is the HeroHunt Scavenger Hunt?

A Family Fun Exploration of NWFL

We love Pensacola. We love Gulf Breeze. We love Milton and Pace and Cantonment and Navarre. We love Navarre Beach, Pensacola Beach, Perdido Key. At the risk of surprising you, we also love Destin, Santa Rosa Beach, all of 30A, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City and even Panama City Beach too. We love each and every city and town across Florida's Emerald Coast and its surrounding areas too. We love the nature, the people, the local businesses and especially the local nonprofits. 


That is why each and every month, The HeroHunt Scavenger Hunt! presented by The Young Marines of Pensacola will lead people on exciting treks across their local area, in the hunt for clues (and selfie opportunities!)


Go to each spot on your location list, take a picture and then post it to social media. Don't forget to tag your location and use the hashtags #HeroHunt #YMOP & #GulfCoastKidsHouse! 

With each picture you post, The Young Marines will give you a portion of a clue! If you're at a business, be sure to show them your picture and they may just surprise you with something!

Put all the clues together, solve the riddle and take a picture of the final, secret location! Once you do, your family will be entered into drawing for our prize of the month!

What better prize could we offer than an awesome fireworks package! Be sure to check out The Young Marines of Pensacola TNT Fireworks Tent and stock up for this 4th of July!
