The Solving Fun Puzzle Pals are busy creating puzzles for this year's hunt! They’re excited for our community to explore many of the wonderful sites this city has to offer. 

 

The Puzzle Hunt includes several weeks of puzzles during the month of May. It’s free and filled with puzzles for you and your family and friends to solve together. Solve one week’s worth or do them all. Previous week's puzzles will remain available through the end of the hunt.  Each week's puzzles will lead to a different location in Palo Alto. Solvers will go to these locations to find clues for final answers. Happy solving!
