Did you hear about the Kia Rio Scavenger Hunt?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kia Rio for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I encourage everyone to watch the Youtube video above to get a better idea about Kia Rio's scavenger hunt and feel free to leave comments.

They say the joy of an adventure is not the destination itself, but the journey that leads you to it. But what if both were equally exciting? Imagine for a moment you are on a scavenger hunt in L.A. with your best friend, hitting some of the most famous landmarks looking for clues. You set out on your adventure in a sleek, high tech user friendly vehichle. What's your prize? The chance to meet a famous Hollywood celebrity!
Kia has sent two pairs of best friends on the zip and dash to Los Angeles geocache challenge in the 2012 Kia Rio 5-door. The teams utilize the car's awesome features to make their way through L.A. in search of Christina Milian. From the latest Bluetooth system to its innovative USB input jack, these duos are starstruck by more than Christina herself.

The five locations the contestants visit are:

-The Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round - A historic landmark in L.A. that has been running since 1937 is a place where Walt Disney brought his children before building Disneyland.
-Amoeba Records - One of the most popular historic music stores in Los Angeles. Visitors can find rare vinyl, CDs, tapes and music memorabilia and even catch a live show. The clue in Amoeba was to find a hidden Christina Milian CD.
-Rodeo Drive - One of the most expensive and swanky shopping destinations in Beverly Hills. The clue on Rodeo drive was to count the number of palm trees from one street to another.
-Pink's Hot Dogs - An L.A. favorite serving hot dogs named after Hollywood celebrities.
-The Roosevelt Hotel - Smack dab in the middle of Hollywood Blvd. and home to both history and the best parties in L.A.. This is where they finally had the opportunity to meet Christina Milian.

I personally think this scavenger hunt is pretty darn cool. I can't think of a better way to see all of these historical Los Angeles landmarks and you get to drive around in a new car full of super cool gadgets.

Click here to explore the Kia Rio Explorer Page. All new Kia Rio's are equipped with UVO Technology. According to Kia's website, Kia Rio's start at $13,600. Kia's have a 10 year, 100,000 mile warranty. The Rio's come standard with 15" wheels, mesh radiator grills, heated mirrors, 2 lens reflector headlights, dual exhaust tips, chrome bumper air intake and Sirius XM radio system just to name a few things.

I would definitely take a challenge throughout L.A.. I don't particularly have a famous superstar I would like to meet, as I'm not starstruck, but I still think it would be fun! If I could Zip and Dash, I would probably want to do it in Chicago! What do you think?
