The [[Tour de Alto Mare]], a water chariot race, is held annually. Trainers race on floating platforms pulled by their Pokémon. One year, the competition was won by {{an|Misty}} and her {{TP|Misty|Corsola}}. Winners are awarded a medal, depicting Latias and Latios.
It is also the site of Alto Mare Museum, where it exhibits the [[Defense Mechanism of Alto Mare]] (DMA). The fossil of pre-historic Pokémon, such as {{p|Aerodactyl}} and {{p|Kabutops}} can also be seen in the museum's floor. [[Lorenzo]] and his granddaughter, {{OBP|Bianca|M05}}, are the caretakers of the museum.
The [[Secret Garden (location)|Secret Garden]], where Latias and Latios reside, is found near the museum. Located in a small pond is the [[Soul Dew]]. If removed, it can be used to control the DMA, but this will cause all the water to drain from the city. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the two {{pkmn|category|Eon Pokémon}} to protect the Soul Dew.
