Shaded walks on the trails make for a great place to be while playing Pokemon Go. There are more than seven Poke Stops and two gyms. The Rotary Amphitheater is one of the gyms, be aware that if a show is happening to be respectful to the performance. Tons of wild Pokemon are also out on any of the trails.

Remember, safety first! Watch out for Team Rocket! Ash Ketchum always had Misty, Brock and his Pokemon friends around when traveling Kanto, and you should too! Visiting Poke Stops and Poke Gyms is better to do with friends so that you aren't walking alone. Go out and be active but don't forget, as you are out, be aware of your surroundings. Enjoy yourself as you go around catching em all in the Friendliest Small Town.
