II did that very same thing incorporated Pokémon Go into my vacation. I found a map of pokestops and selected tourist attractions that were both interesting to me and had the most stops.
I would lure up the area as I arrived and would use my Go Plus to catch while I enjoyed the sights, foods and explored the area with my family. Occasionally I would grab my phone to see if any cool spawns were out and would hunt them if they were on sightings.
At the end of each day I would name all my favorites from that day for the location I caught them. I still have them all saved and use it as a reminder of my trip. I generally do this on my travel so so I can always remember the adventure and don't accidentally transfer them.
I would also use the AR mode to take some fun pictures to help serve as a further reminder of the adventure.
