Lima

Vacation snaps and souvenir T-shirts will fade one day, but memories of your trip to Lima will linger forever.

This Lima location contains some 7,700,000 people.

The kids can spend a whole afternoon zipping around and looking over the exotic animals at the Leyendas Park and the Huachipa Zoo.

When the sun is shining, pack a picnic and find a shady corner at one of the area's leafy green spaces, such as Exposition Park or Kennedy Park. La Reserva Park and University Park are two more nice places to while away a lazy afternoon and finally read that neglected book of yours.

Are you longing for some salty ocean air? There's enough coast here to keep you busy for a day or two. Pack some delicious snacks and make your way over to Waikiki Beach or Hermosa Beach. Santa Maria Beach and Pucusana Beach are also good options.

Take a deep breath and admire Mother Nature's gifts at Miraflores Central Park and Olivar Park. You may also like to recharge your batteries at San Cristobal Hill.

Grab a buddy or two and explore some of the popular cultural spaces nearby. The Gold Museum and the Amano Museum offer a range of displays and collections that are bound to spark your curiosity. Another two to look at are the Electricity Museum and the Museum of Congress and Inquisition.

Some think of natural museums as the domain of children, but the intriguing collections of the Museum of the Nation and the National Museum of the Archaeology Anthropology and History of Peru show that there's a good deal to keep the adults entertained too. The Museum of Natural History and the Museo Arqueologico Paracas are also not to be missed.

Want to check out some art? You'll find galleries of all sorts here. Immerse yourself in the hip atmosphere at the Larco Herrera Museum and the Museum of Italian Art. The Lima Art Museum and the Pedro de Osma Museum are also worth a look if you can fit them in before dinner.

The Metropolitan Museum of Lima and the National Museum of Peruvian Culture will provide you with a better understanding of the past through their collection of fascinating exhibit and displays.

Pachacamac Ruins and Huaca Pucllana Ruins are certainly worth paying a visit to, even if history isn't your forte. You might also like to take a few photos at Government Palace and the Major National University of San Marcos.

Bridge of Sighs will be of particular interest to travelers who are fans of civil engineering.

For those interested in Lima's military history, check out the defense structures located at Real Felipe Fortress.

Featuring ornate architecture and manicured gardens, the grand palaces here put most other dwellings to shame. You'll feel like you've stumbled into a storybook upon entering Torre Tagle Palace and Archbishop's Palace.

The spiritual side of the region is evidenced at Cathedral of Lima and San Pedro Church. Church and Convent of San Francisco and Santa Rosa del Mar Church are two more intriguing religious sites.

Before you pack up your suitcase and head off home, make sure you see a few of Lima's lesser-known attractions. The Ricardo Palma Cultural Center and the San Marcos Cultural Center are some worthwhile options. If you can squeeze it in, also visit Villena Bridge or the Sala Luis Miro Quesada Garland Museum.
