Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.Murales de Diego Rivera en la Secretaria de Educacion Publica and House of Tiles (Casa de los Azulejos) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion and La Condesa. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Mexico City: Playa La Virgen (in Tequesquitengo), Cuernavaca (Robert Brady Museum & Archaeological Zone of Xochicalco) and Piedra Herrada Sanctuary (in Valle de Bravo). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Alameda Central, brush up on your military savvy at Museo del Ejercito y Fuerza Aerea Mexicanos Bethlemitas, explore the ancient world of Chalcatzingo, and head outdoors with The Muddy Boot.
