Real world exploration game?

I already know about Geocaching and Waymarking, but I'm wondering if there are other real-world exploration games out there that may or may not involve gps. The goal would be to find new and interesting places, both in urban and wilderness settings.
My problem with Geocaching is that I enjoy the exploring part but do not like the finding the cache in the weeds part, which is often about as fun as looking for your dropped keys and can often take a painstakingly long time. My problem with Waymarking is that the site is too filled up with uninteresting crap, like fast food restaurants and street signs without any aesthetic, historical, or cultural value.
I suspect that Waymarking is the best I'm gonna get, but maybe there's something else out there.
