• Things to do in Mexico City

    2010-08-10

    Mexico's coast is a popular destination for vacationers, but the capital of Mexico City offers plenty of things to do away from the beaches.

    According to the Houston Chronicle, it's possible to pack all of the culture and history of Mexico City into a three-day weekend.

    One of the top things to do in Mexico City is actually a short trip outside the city. Just a short 45 minutes away from the city proper is Teotihuacan, which was once one of the bigger cities in the world. This massive complex, comprised of pyramids, temples and palaces, is an amazing sight for any traveler. Vacationers should be sure to head up the 250-stair Pyramid of the Sun for a truly amazing glimpse of the city.

    Back in Mexico City, travelers can continue the culture trip with a visit to the Casa Azul, also known as the Frida Kahlo Museum. After that, the Xochimilco district is a system of canals similar to Venice, but with a distinctly Mexican twist: boats that sell beer and tacos right on the river.

    With all these sites to choose from, those engaging in Mexico travel may want to consider the capital as a destination.
