Pokemon Go Hitmonchan at Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls State Park Visitor Center and Great Lakes Garden: In front of the Niagara Falls State Park Visitor Center sits the Great Lakes Garden - a beautiful spot to enjoy the acres of brilliant floral gardens and catch various Pokemon. This location is in the middle of multiple Pokestops.

Heritage Park: Directly across from The Red Coach Inn or The Turtle (a Pokestop), is Heritage Park, providing a ideal green area to catch rare urban Pokemon.

Prospect Point: Not only does Prospect Point offer stunning views of the American Falls, but it is also a Pokemon Gym location. There are several Pokemon wandering around the Lower Grove/American Rapids Trails, which follows the American Rapids upstream to the American Falls pedestrian bridges and beyond.

Goat Island and Luna Island: These Pokestops are tend to be a little farther away from one another, but it's a great way to get in some extra steps to hatch any eggs you may have. We suggest walking along the Niagara River for a variety of water Pokemon.
