[September 12, 2020]    Here in Logan County we have a large number of locations that can be fun, interesting, and educational all at one time. We love the county and enjoy sharing all that it has to offer with our readers.

This year there are a lot of reasons for not leaving home for a vacation. We understand that some are concerned about the added expense they have seen this year with children home from school. Some are concerned about the loss of income they experienced this year due to the coronavirus shut down of work locations. And, some of us are concerned about going into other communities where Covid-19 may still be quite active.


But, that doesn’t mean you can’t take a day at a time in your home community and find something fun and interesting to do, with minimal risk to your family and not a lot of expense involved.

To help you find these locations and make it a little more fun for everyone LDN has gone ahead of you exploring eight separate locations.

Over the next eight weeks, we will be giving you daily hints with photos on Tuesday through Saturday of each week.

As you view the photos and read the clues you have the opportunity to figure out where it is in the county. When you figure it out, load up the kiddos or your bestie or spouse and go visit the place you believe we are talking about.

Each place we have chosen has plenty to see that can be seen without worrying about social distancing or wearing a mask. Attractions that will draw you to the location are all outdoors. In some cases you have the option to go inside a structure and explore if you wish, but you don’t have to go inside to find the images in the photos we provide.

All of the places are admission free, so you can pack a lunch or a snack from home and your only real expense will be the gas it takes to get where you are going.

To get the daily clue look for the Eye Spy photo in the top picture section of the LDN Community page. Click on the pic and read the clue for the day.

When you go out take your cellphone or camera and snap a couple of pictures of yourself and the ones who are with you. Send us the photo with your name, the names of the people in the photo with you, and of course, your guess as to where you are. You may also send us a comment about your adventure if you wish.

Email your photo in a large size to ldneditor@lincolndailynews.com or you can send it to us via messenger on our Facebook page. The deadline for submitting photos will be noon each Sunday.

Please DO NOT POST your photo or guesses in the comments sections of our Facebook page, as others may be still trying to figure out where we are, and we don’t want to spoil it for them. You CAN post that you found the location and challenge a friend or family member to find it too!

When photos arrive we will note who’s arrived first, second, third, and so on. We will feature EVERY photo submitted in our Monday editions. Then on Tuesday we will start over with a new location and new daily clues.

This is a “for fun” game only with no prizes involved and no gimmicks attached. All you have to do is figure out the clues and go visit the site. What you will have are bragging rights if you are the one to figure it out first!

So, come play “Eye Spy” with us!
