1. The Santa Lucia Riverwalk: The families’ favorite place. This walk connects the downtown area with the Fundidora Park, through a 1.5 mile water canal, which can be covered walking or by comfortable and safe motorboats. Santa Lucia is embelished with fountains, gardens, sculptures. At night a beautiful lightning gives the Riverwalk an enchanting look. Throughout the Riverwalk you can find several restaurants that vary from Mexican Gourmet to Italian. 


2. The Northeastern Museum (MUNE), is one of the punctual projects of cultural infrastructure in Nuevo León. It is a dynamic space in which the Northeast forge is reflected, which includes the states of Nuevo León, Coahuila, Tamaulipas, and Texas, with an integrating vision. TIP: with your entrance ticket to the MUNE,  you also have access to the Museum of Mexican History, and the Museum of the Government Palace, and it’s well worth the visit to the 3 of them. Wednesdays and Sundays entrance for the 3 museums is free. For more information you can visit or you can follow them in Twitter @3museos.


3. Another space that represents a valuable cultural contribution is the Steel Museum, Horno 3, located in Fundidora Park, and built inside Blast Furnace #3.
