Unless you live under a rock, you're probably playing Pokémon Go in Austin right now. With an unprecedented level of immediate success, Pokémon Go has trainers of all ages braving the heat in search of new Pokémon. Now that downtown and central Austin have finally been filled with Pokéstops, we've compiled a list of the best places in and around the city that will help you catch 'em all.
Hailed as one of the few Capitol buildings in the country larger than the U.S. Capitol, Texas's gorgeous Capitol is also home to a dizzying number of Pokéstops and gyms. With over 20 Pokéstops and a highly contested gym, the Capitol is a fantastic place for beginners to advanced trainers. Just remember to be mindful that it does contain many memorials, so be mindful and don't mess with Texas.
All of the Pokémon starters are beloved, but none perhaps as much as Charmander. So, you might be asking yourself, "Where can I catch Charmanders in Austin?" Head to Auditorium Shores near Riverside and you won't be disappointed. Before the Pokéstops went live in downtown Austin, Auditorium Shores was still home to a great array of Pokémon. With the update, there's a Pokéstop every 20 yards.
Since the update, South Congress, starting at the Congress Bridge and extending seemingly forever, is an absolute treasure trove of Pokéstops and gyms. You can access four Pokéstops while you're taking a selfie in front of the "I Love You So Much" sign alone, and there's even more when you're near Uncommon Objects. Find parking anywhere in SoCo, and you'll have enough stops to never pay for Pokéballs again. Near the South Congress Bridge, you'll find a trio of gyms at the Chevron Gas Station mural, the Austin American Statesman, and the Nightwing Statue.
