If it’s the first time you visit Tijuana, or you live here but you don't know the history of this border city, these places will allow you to know or remember it.
Tijuana has it all, and these 10 emblematic places from the city will prove it to you.
1. Avenida Revolución:
Also known by the Tijuanenses as "La Revu". This avenue has a wide range of handicrafts, souvenirs, spots for the best photo, gastronomy, but above all, the different clubs and bars that are among its streets, and you won’t want to leave.

The Tijuana Cultural Center, better known as Cecut, is a place full of art, culture, history, literature, theater and symphony. It is also a space in the city that has the most anticipated events by Tijuana.
And if that were not enough, it has a visual appeal, which is the DOMO IMAX, a cinema where its screens are practically a giant ball that surrounds you by being a spectator of any movie.

Have you taken your photo? If you’re in Tijuana, I invite you to visit the city and the whole exhibit of #Bronces (bronze) in this space of the most transited border in the world.

5. Boardwalk at Playas de Tijuana:
A very crowded place for Tijuanenses and tourists, because you will not only find restaurants with fresh seafood, but you can also enjoy live music, events and a family atmosphere with cocos preparados (coconut prepared with lemon, salt, chili) or roasted shrimp skewers.
Also, if you are one of those who likes to exercise, here you can find different people with the same taste and different sport activities. Or you can simply run along the paths of this boardwalk, while watching the waves of the sea.
