There are three restaurants on the plaza where you can have a drink and watch plaza life, two of them play music (not at the same time) and one belongs to a good hotel - the two with music are better than the hotel restaurant....More

The Plaza de Armas, in Queretaro City, Mexico has the historic plaza that is perfect for watching the endless parade of people, all the while you eat delicious ice cream or Mexican sweet bread for the nearby shops!

Plenty to see, the buildings are beautiful, and the churches are something you must walk in and see. There is one almost on every corner. I felt safe the whole time, and lots of great street vendors.

Part of Queretaro's independence walking tour. Also a nice shady place to take a walk and people watch. Lots of outdoor cafes and ice cream ships in the area too.

Sit here to see the time flows. Daytime or nightime. You will enjoy. Grab a drink, it can be really hot at day time.

If you go downtown Queretaro to the Centro Historico, just take a walk, see the different Placas, sit down for a drink or something to eat. Enjoy the time.

A lovely, and safe place to sit and visit, day or night! Basically anywhere within the Historical District is safe day or night. Always something going on here, whether vendors, musicians, dancers, concerts, etc. Restaurants surround the Plaza, as well as alleys full of vendors...More
