Visitor Information:
Aside from the more than 300 of active caches within five miles of the venue, there are many other activities for visitors. The City of Troy has created an Attractions Guide for visitors with area museums and entertainment. Also nearby is the Somerset Collection, Oakland Mall, and an REI (just on the opposite side of the freeway from the venue) for shopping. If you'll be spending more than a day, consider visiting either Ontario, Canada or Toledo, Ohio each within about an hour drive to color in additional states, provinces, or countries on your caching map.
