ST. LOUIS, MO—Reedy Press is pleased to announce the release of our newest guidebook, Dallas-Fort Worth Scavenger, by Tui Snider.

Looking for a new way to explore the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex? Put on your walking shoes and channel your inner Sherlock to solve riddles that will take you on a unique scavenger hunt through 27 neighborhoods in 12 cities.

Each rhyming clue includes a photo to help you discover intriguing places, many of which are hidden in plain sight. Decoding these hints leads you to everything from hidden time capsules and forgotten fallout shelters, to a barber shop that’s operated from the same little storefront since 1892. There’s even a modern-day speakeasy. And if you think Venus was birthed on a half-shell, here in North Texas she stands on top of a saguaro cactus.

Use this book for inspiration when guests visit, to take your family and friends on an adventure, or simply solve clues on your own. Plan a day for each section, then linger to enjoy the shops, restaurants, and parks in each featured area. Along the way you’re bound to discover new-to-you places and overlooked history while gaining a deeper appreciation for the many delights to be found in the Metroplex.

Author and local explorer Tui Snider brings her expert eye for quirky details and forgotten history to his one-of-a-kind experience. Once you’ve embarked on this Dallas-Fort Worth scavenger hunt, you’ll never see North Texas the same way again.
