• Classic and modern cultures live side by side in Buenos Aires, Argentina

    2010-04-21

    Despite its beauteous natural scenery, historical cities and distinguished culinary reputation, South America remains largely unexplored by many North American travelers. Yet tourists searching for an epic and grand city that incorporates both modern and classic architecture while featuring a lively culture all of its own will have hard time finding a better destination than Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    As the capital and largest city of the country, Buenos Aires is a modern and fast-paced city that remains true to its cultural heritage. It is the point of departure for travel throughout the rest of the country, yet there is more than enough to see and do in the city for the average visitor.

    One of the best destinations for historical travelers is the San Telmo district, a sprawling area littered with colonial-style buildings and cobblestone lanes. It is called the heart of the "tourist tango," offering up a dozen different venues where travelers can take in a show or dance the night away.

    For a dose of modern culture travelers can head to La Boca, a working-class neighborhood that houses a number of shops, bars and restaurants in a bright and festive setting.
