This April through June, grab your fedora and venture through Downtown Garland to discover local history. Start your adventure by downloading the Visit Garland, TX app. Follow the tour clues to gather 8 images which you can turn in for treasure at the Garland Landmark Museum or the Visit Garland office! Share your treasure images with us on social using #HiddenGarland.

Once you've downloaded the app, click on Tours and choose Hidden Garland to start your adventure.
  • You can map your scavenger hunt trail then click on each destination.
  • Click on the AR View/ Eye icon of the destination you headed to. This will open your camera at the top of the screen. Using your location, the bottom of the screen is a map that will guide you to that location.
  • Spot the clues we've left for you by looking through the AR view.
  • Each hint tells you what you need to take a picture of before you head to the next location.
  • Just click the Camera icon to take a picture.
  • If you gather the correct 8 images, you can pick up treasure at the Garland Landmark Museum or the Visitor Information Center!
  • Please note that only one prize will be issued per person per set of clues.

  • This is a location-based scavenger hunt. This means you need to give the app location permissions otherwise it won't work.
  • If you don't see a clue through your camera view, walk around scanning with your camera. You might even try walking in the opposite direction a few steps then returning. Or close out and reopen the camera view.
  • If the clue looks like it is moving away from you, close and reopen the camera view.


Once you have gathered the correct 8 images of the scavenger hunt, head over to the Garland Landmark Museum or the Visitor Information Center and claim your prize! You can choose from one of these two t- shirts as your prize for completing the Hidden Garland scavenger hunt! Yay you!
