Monterrey Mexico Sights

Culture, Travel

I live in Monterrey Mexico. It’s an industrial city about 2 1/2 hours from Laredo Texas. It’s considered the most “Americanized” city in Mexico with HEB, Home Depot, Costco, and shopping malls. Now that I have a friend coming to visit for a few days, I am thinking of touristy things to do. What would be fun for a tourist to do here? Here are five places I will be showing her (with exception to the last one sadly).

Macroplaza and Barrio Antiguo

This is el centro de Monterrey with great architecture and restaurants with a more Mexican feel.

 

San Pedro

This is the posh area of Monterrey where you can shop till you drop and have a nice upscale meal. Side note: This beautiful area comes with a beautiful price tag too.$$$
