Morelia

Do you need to escape the nine-to-five? Morelia boasts a range of places to go and things to see.

This is an area of Michoacan that roughly 600,000 people reside in.

It lies roughly 12 miles east of Capula and about 140 miles west of Mexico City, the national capital.

Your whole family will have a blast checking out the furry, feathered and scaled animals at the Benito Juarez Zoo. Be sure to ask at the entrance about hands-on activities and where to find the zoo's rarer specimens.

Those with an interest in horticulture will appreciate a walk through the Rose Garden.

Make sure you head to Villalongin Garden when you need to relax. Alternatively, breathe in the fresh floral aromas and flip through a magazine at Bosque Cuauhtémoc.

Take the time to see the area's educational museums. The Franciscan Convent of Santa Ana Old Museum, the Michoacan Crafts Museum and the Orquidario ought to be at the top of your list.

Some travelers think of natural museums as the realm of children, but the fascinating specimens at the Regional Museum of Michoacan and the Morelia Museum of Natural History show that there's enough to keep the adults entertained too. You could also explore the Casa de los Once Patios and the Museo del Estado.

If you're looking for art, step inside some of the nearby exhibit spaces. Make the most of the creative atmosphere at the Museum of Colonial Art, the Alfredo Zalce Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museo de Artes Populares.

To find out more about the people and places of this region's past, consider visiting at least one of its many historic structures and monuments. Start your history lesson at Federal Palace or Casa Natal de Morelos. More tales from the days of old are waiting for you at the House of the Eleven Patios and the Las Tarascas Fountain.

Palace of Justice is a giant time capsule, featuring some of the finest design and craftsmanship in the region.

The area's spiritual side is evidenced at Morelia Cathedral and Guadalupe Sanctuary. Temple of the Nuns and Temple Sagrario are two more recommended holy places.

At the center of many city squares you'll likely find some sort of fountain or statue, but it's the unique stories of each space and the characters that inhabit them that make them special. A trip to this destination wouldn't be complete without walking through Plaza de Armas and Basque of Quiroga Square. The locals are sure to also point you in the direction of Villa Longin and Plaza Morelos.

If you want to have a look at where the leaders of tomorrow are made, arrange a visit to the Morelia Institute of Technology. Take a walk around campus, experience the buzzing social scene and be on the lookout for any possible guided tours.

To experience the more creative side of things, reserve seats at Palacio del Arte, one of the great performing art venues in the area. Before the performance, enjoy a light meal at one of the nearby restaurants or bars.

If you're after something else to do in Morelia, head over to Gertrudis Bocanegra Square.
