hey, what is wrong with caches in high muggle area's? ;) They add to the
difficulty level and if the caches is rated to reflect that, I see know

Now, for a spot to hide a cache look at the City of Kingston's website for
their Parks Map.  I have used this to find spots to hide a cache.

I track all caches I have hit on Microsoft Streets & Trips and can send a
picture of Kingston showing where caches are, using this I see some MAJOR
holes with city parks all over that have no caches in them.

On another note, what about hiding a cache in Cataraqui Cemetery, lots of
history in there and I am sure a cache could be hidden in a quiet area.
There is a Prime Minister buried there and a few other notables.
