This is an entertaining downtown area....great for people watching! The beautiful cathedral is on one side with old colonial buildings all around. There is a pretty gazebo and water features and plenty of places to sit and enjoy.

Chihuahua is not really a great tourist attraction town like Cancun or some other tropical destinations, but if you are in to reasonable prices, great attractions, and love history, than it is worth going to. The downtown is full of rich North American history
