To be candid, if you find yourself in Cordoba for the day you may struggle to find activities to fill your hours. The city is the second-largest in Argentina and known for its Spanish colonial architecture — and lack of things to do. Here’s are a few worthwhile things to do in the city to ensure you leave with good memories.
Avoid the notorious heat in Cordoba by ducking inside the air-conditioned Evita Fine Arts Museum. The museum holds pieces from artists such as Goya and Picasso and you can easily spend a few hours wandering through more than 500 pieces of art. Be sure to check out the sculpture garden out back.
Dine in an Alley
Set inside a converted alleyway, El Papagayo Restaurant is an elegant, tasteful lunch and dinner restaurant well-known as one of the best eateries in the city. They serve three- and 11-course tasting menus with an optional wine pairing that are well worth a trip into the heart of the city.
Take a Free Walking Tour
There’s no better way to get a grasp on the city than by taking a free walking tour. LaDocta leads two free walking tours a day at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., exploring the historic center and the bohemian/student neighborhood.
Go on a (Cheap) Shopping Spree
Cordoba is a style hunter’s dream. Boutiques are plentiful and relatively inexpensive compared to American stores. Start at Paseo de las Artes to search through traditional artisan stores and wander through the streets from there.
The first Saturday in May is a special time of year for comic book fans all over the country. Free Comic Book Day functions exactly like it sounds. Comic book stores across the country host a day of festivities where, regardless of whether you buy anything, you can walk away with free books.
Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
The babymoon trend is adding to the number of women traveling while pregnant. Expecting moms often need special items to take on the road. If you plan to travel while pregnant, you may want to consider adding these products to your suitcase.
Online shopping continues to soar in popularity with more people choosing to browse an entire catalogue of options instead of making a trip to the store. It makes sense because people are busy and sometimes don’t have time to spend hours browsing a store only to buy a few outfits. When shopping online, people can buy items sporadically or fill up carts and purchase them later. Online shopping is now more than just searching on the web, it’s also swiping through an app. Apps make it easier than ever to keep up with sales, new items and trends.
Beyond being a major hub in the global transportation network, Hartsfield-Jackson is also proud to be a major hub for exciting, high-quality retail options through our award-winning concessions program, ATL Skypointe.
With the early days of spring behind us, the busy days of summer festivals and events will be here before you know it. Most festival favorites, like Bonnaroo, Firefly, Coachella, Lollapalooza, CMA Music Festival and Austin City Limits, have lineups already announced, early-bird pricing expired and tickets mostly sold out or close to it, but, don’t worry, there are far more unique events taking place all over the world. If not this year, at least keep them on your radar for next.
