Pokemon Go is an interactive way to explore the world around you. I love it for a couple of reasons. First it is interesting and engaging. It gets people to move around their neighborhood or other areas more as they find new icons or Pokemon creatures to capture. Second it provides points of interest and information that makes walking through an area an educational experience.
