- www.geocaching.com - the major Geocaching website.
- www.terracaching.com - an offshoot or rival of geocaching.com, terracaching.com requires the sponsorship of two other members to join. Note: there are no terracaches in the Misawa locality at this time.
- Geocacher University - fantastic website devoted to all things geocaching.
- Letterboxing North America - A site about letterboxing, which is sort of kind of like geocaching except that one finds the letterboxes via clues rather than having a specific set of coordinates to find. Letterboxing has a history dating back to Victorian England. This site is specifically geared towards letterboxing in North America and only lists letterboxes in North America; it's included for those who might be interested in mystery-style geocaching.
