    Closed to traffic on Sundays, great time for dog spotting
    A beautiful avenue filled with lovely statuary, landscaped gardens and lots of trees. It makes for a nice walk to Chapultepec park. If you’re not much for walking, the number 7 bus goes down this street. Note, the central lanes are closed on Sunday’s. On these days the entire city comes out on bikes, rollerblades and scooters to ride down Reforma. It was great for dog spitting. I saw four Pomeranians on bikes, a cat in a backpack and a Doberman with TWO gold chains.

    Perfect Street For Walking and Sightseeing!
    The hotel I stayed at was off of Paseo Reforma and we used it quite a bit to get from Chapultepec and to do dinner and shopping. The street is lined with pathways for walking, food, coffee, and high end shopping. It is worth taking a stroll on this beautiful street to get a feel of the tourist section of Mexico City.

    Sunday morning bike rentals on Paseo de la Reforma
    So lovely. We rented bikes from Ecobici (115 pesos for a 1-day membership) and biked from el Auditorio Nacional to the zócalo and back. Took about 2 hours total. Sunday mornings 1 lane of the avenue is blocked off for just runners/bikers, etc. Thousands of people exercising, El Angel de la Independencia, Alameda Central. Palacio de Bellas Artes. Just excellent!!

What an amazing journey! we walked from our place we rented in Polanco to the Paseo de la Reforma to end into the Museum of Anthropology! We had so much fun riding those bikes, that you rent and leave them anywhere once you arrived to the destination. The Paseo de la Reforma is immaculate clean and neat, we found a worker sweeping all the leaves from the beautiful park, we took pictures and then when we arrived to the museum, it was another great experience. Vendors in one area then the museum in another area. We were charged 2 dollars to enter, The museum was beautiful, clean and they had bathroom available in all areas.
Then the store to the museum sold beautiful souvenirs, I bought so many beautiful gifts for my sisters and for me. I will do this experience all over again. I took pictures of my grandson and my beautiful daughters inside the museum, there is a huge water fountain and my grandson and my granddaughter had much playing with thw water.

This wide avenue runs for miles and shows the architecture of Mexico City from the historic areas around the Zocolo to El Angel to Chapultepec Park and then to the "new". Mexico City with modern sleek new skyscrapers that look like works of art. This boulevard is designed after those in Europe with benches, median gardens, fountains, public art exhibitions, many monuments like statues honoring Christopher Columbus and the equestrian one with Charles IV of Spain. It has wide walkways, good lighting, is clean and safe. Driving it or walking, it's the main artery of Mexico City.

If this avenue is the main artery of Mexico City, and it is, then the city is suffering from serious cardiovascular disease. All of Mexico City endures bad air, but the air on Paseo de la Reforma is lethal. It will literally bring tears to your eyes and lump to your throat. And you are not going to be any too happy about either.

My wife and I tried driving it in a cab once (snails move faster!) and we tried walking it twice. All three times we had to admit defeat and head off on side street leading back to our apartment in La Condesa.

Yes, the buildings are impressive. Yes, the shops are wonderful. Yes, the restaurants serve delicious food. Yes, you have Chapultepec Park, one of the world's biggest and best urban parks, at one end and the historic center at the other, with Alameda Central (park) in the middle. Impressive, no? Yes, if you survive it.

But a really beautiful street if you chose to stay near here at the end toward Chapultatec park. It is very central and safe and that end was SO beautiful with Jacaranda trees blooming. Sundays they close the square near the Plaza Diana and you can bike and run down the Paseo. Really a great plan for the family.

There's plenty of room to walk adjacent to this very wide/busy boulevard in one of Mexico City's nicer areas. It's a typical urban thoroughfare in that there's a mix of businesses from coffee shops to cafes to banks and other non touristy spots. Lots of trees to keep the sun off and the noise under control. Tons of dog walkers.

This is the central road in the middle of Mexico city.
Lots of attractions, hotels, malls, monuments, restaurants, cafes and others are located along the road. You can see lots of kiosks for souvenirs, food and arts are near to most of the squares.

This massive tree lined Boulevard is one of the main arterial roads through Mexico City. It is wide and beautifully presented with statues and monuments running along the middle of it. We just saw it in passing, but found it very impressive.

Probably the spine and main avenue of the new Mexico City. It is a wide and bustling avenue, lined with hotels and interesting office buildings and monuments. On Sundays it turns into a big pedestrian mall where people bike, jog or just stroll down it’s length.

Mexico City center is one of the most walkable cities I’ve ever been too. The urban planning and landscaping is remarkable. There is so much to see along the way along with the monuments and modern architecture. Definitely a must do.

It’s not the first time I visited Mexico City and still every time I am there I find time to walk along Paseo de la Reforma. There is something special about its ambiance, which I can best describe as a mix of ambitions and friendliness, peacefulness and vanity, modern culture and poetic past, and all these penetrating every corner of this avenue.
Wonderful place to get to know local work lifestyle.
