Participating in gym raids is one of the most exciting and social aspects of the Pokémon GO game. And, with the recent additions of 1 and 3 hour events focused on this specific activity, it’s now one of the most prominent parts of the mobile sensation.
One of our favorite places to participate in gym raids is in our own hometown of Wilkes County, NC. Although we do have a few hard to get to gyms on the outskirts of our area, we also have 37 locations which, if strategized correctly, can be visited within a 3 hour window.
