On the home page click on your state. Move the map until you get to your home area. Click on a cache. Coordinates will be on the cache page.

Another way to find caches in your area is click on the menu on the main site, then click on 'find a geocache'
From there you can find a geocache by your postcode, or locality name or whatnot.

Also note, if the geocache you are looking for is listed on another site (like geocaching.com) then you will not be able to find the co-ordinates here.

Where are you located?

There might be a local cacher who can meet with you to help out?
