Port City Brewing Company has already made waves as a popular Pokémon gym, which makes it a top-stop in Alexandria. That, and the fact that you can sip delicious craft beer while you battle.

2. Carlyle House


It’s double the fun at Carlyle House, which has two Pokéstops to help you level up faster. You can hop on a tour to catch ’em both.

Down the street, Fearow can be seen flying around the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum, can you catch it? As you walk from Carlyle House, get some steps in to help your eggs hatch faster, and see if you can spot any other Pokémon around King Street.

Give your legs a break and hop on the Free King Street Trolley. As you ride, you’ll come across a lot of Pokéstops and see plenty of Pokémon pop up. You might even catch a lazy Pokémon looking to hitch a ride down to the waterfront.


5. Waterfront Marina

Last but not least is the Waterfront Marina, where you can find all kinds of Pokémon. Take a walk along the waterfront to catch more, but just make sure you don’t mistake the seagulls for Pokémon.
