Walk the avenues and go to Juarez Avenues and take advantage of the Alameda Park to walk, see the fountains, sculptures, sit on a bench and people watch and enjoy the trees and birds. A lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon.

The center is enormous, bigger than any square I have ever before seen. It was Christmas, so the square was filled with festive decorations and a giant skating rink for the public.

The historic district is the home to several different museums including the National Palace and the Diego Rivera museum. The park is always bustling. There is shopping around as well as good food. You won't get bored here.
