The Nine Best Places to Play Pokemon Go in Broward

Page 2 of 2

5. War Memorial Park
Imagine dying honorably in WWII only to have your shrine overrun by a gang of ambitious Pokémon trainers. We hear there are some PokéStops here. Just remember to show some respect.
4. Hollywood Beach Boardwalk
There's a gym here, and Margaritaville is crawling with Pokémon. When you're peering down at your phone trying to catch a Pidgey, beware of passersby and tricycles.
3. Nova Southeastern University
Spring semester might've ended months ago, but this Davie campus is still bustling with people. There are nearly a dozen PokéStops and a gym. Administrators might've finally found a way to boost attendance. 
2. Pompano Pier
As a rule, Broward beaches are teeming with PokéStops. Word on the street, though, is that Pompano Pier is home to the hard-to-find Gyarados dragon.  Stop by, stick your pole in the ocean, and run around trying  to catch creatures in a virtual dimension. 
1. Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale
Catching Pokemon isn't so bad when there is shade and a slight breeze off the water. Riverside Park is home to a few PokéStops and a sanctuary for Ivysaur, Onyx, Exeggutor,  Psyduck, and Magikarp.
