Avenida Morelos

A pedestrianized shopping street running through the heart of Monterrey’s central Zona Rosa district, Avenida Morelos makes a popular alternative to the city’s glitzy shopping malls, with a large number of handicrafts stores and a distinctly local flavor.

Stretching over almost 10 blocks, the shopping arcade is the best place in the city to shop for local specialties, which include leather goods (most notably Mexico’s largest selection of cowboy boots), marquetry wooden boxes and hand-painted alebrijes (wooden figures), along with clothing, furnishings and souvenirs. Even if you’re not shopping, Avenida Morelos is an atmospheric spot to pass an afternoon, with a wide selection of restaurants, cafés and bars, from which to watch the world go by, and entertainment provided by street musicians and performers.
