'Pokemon Go' Map of Cincinnati

The developers of Pokemon Go apparently want you in the great outdoors looking for, and capturing characters from that Nintendo-created universe. How else to explain that the best places to look are pedestrian friendly, mostly wide-open spaces? Cincinnati offers several great places to play this super hot smartphone game. There's plenty of variety in these locations too, assuring you'll encounter a wide variety of characters.

Of course, unlike Philadelphia, it's not always sunny in Cincinnati. This is the Midwest afterall. No worries, though. There are a some great indoor spots where you can play as well. Indeed, in some locations you can move in and out of doors with ease and still stay on the trail.
