What are the best places to visit in Mexico City?

It's enjoyable to just stroll around the streets when you're in a new place, but sometimes it's a good idea to have an agenda. Grab your schedule — we've got some awesome ideas for your Mexico City vacation.

With such a great range of famed attractions in the one place, you'll never have a dull moment in Mexico City! First things first, be sure you snap some selfies out the front of Chapultepec Park and Plaza de la Constitucion. After you've struck those from the bucket list, you'll still have the Monumento a los Ninos Heroes and Zocalo to check out!

You'll never have to worry about a boring moment in this enticing city. Tlatelolco and the Museo de Arte Moderno will keep you entertained. The Tamayo Museum of Contemporary Art and the Monument to the Revolution are some more fantastic sights that are worth a look.

If the kids are tired of sightseeing and could use a run around, why not take them to Alameda Central? It's the ideal spot to play a game of tag and throw a ball around. There's a fabulous range of things to do in this destination. If you're interested in discovering the area's history through its buildings, put Palacio de Bellas Artes on your hit list. Be sure to stop and read any signs or plaques which tell the intriguing stories behind it. Still got some time to spare? The Angel of Independence Monument stands as an important reminder of history. Discover why this commemorative structure was made and better understand local heritage and achievements.

It's not every week you get to go on vacation, so why not pamper yourself and spend a night or two in a posh room at The St. Regis Mexico City (Paseo De La Reforma 439) or the Las Alcobas, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Mexico City (Av. Presidente Masaryk 390)? With exceptional service and first-class amenities, you'll feel like royalty! The Pug Seal Coyoacan Suites (Primer Cerrada Belisario Dominguez # 16) and the Barceló México Reforma (Paseo de la Reforma, 1) both have good reviews if you want something less expensive.

Once you unbuckle your seatbelt at Mexico City International Airport (MEX), you'll be 3 miles from the center of town.
