• Enjoy the view in Buenos Aires

    2010-09-27

    There's plenty to do in Buenos Aires, but many travelers will be content simply walking around and taking in the unique architecture of this famous city.

    According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Buenos Aires is the "Paris of South America." When travelers gaze out across the city, it's easy to see why. The news source recommends a "four balconies tour," which will guide visitors to some famous vantage points in the city in order to give them a better view of the beauty of this urban sprawl.

    The city's skyline is a mix of modern offices and classically-inspired buildings, but it's the space in between these monoliths that many travelers will enjoy exploring. Unlike many metropolises, Buenos Aires strikes a balance between skyscrapers and green spaces, with plenty of public parks and trees providing a change of pace to the urban landscape.

    There are also more than a few areas which are unique to Buenos Aires. La Boca, for instance, is a working-class neighborhood known for its vibrantly colored houses. It can be great just to walk around here, but it's also a good spot to pick up a bite to eat.

    With so much to do, Buenos Aires should be a stop for anyone engaging in South American travel.
