Where do Alhambra residents "catch 'em all"?

Pokémon Go has captured the hearts of Alhambra residents. The augmented reality mobile game is a family affair at local parks and encourages people to explore main thoroughfares in Alhambra

The Alhambra Source reports on the best places to catch Pokémon, according to readers.

1. Almansor Park

Almansor Park has a few Pokestops, including a gym to battle. This is an opportunity to be the "very best like no one ever was."

2. Alhambra Park

Cool down at Alhambra Park's swimming pool and water park. Channel your inner Magikarp.

A reader recommends walking down Valley Boulevard from Monterey Street toward Garfield Avenue.

5. Rabbit Hole on Main Street

If you're 21 and over, you can unwind at the Rabbit Hole Bar after a long work day, while training your Pokémon. 

6. Tea Station on Main Street

Grab some snacks and tea, whether you're Team Mystic, Instinct or Valor.

Please keep in mind some safety tips provided by the Alhambra Police Department. Make sure to stay aware of your surroundings at all times and stay in groups when playing Pokémon Go.
