Fun Things To Do in Buenos Aires

Argentinians are a people that take enjoying themselves seriously. Dining out several nights a week, sitting in the pub with friends all night, dancing 'til dawn, sipping mate on the riverbanks on weekend afternoons - the atmosphere is social and leisurely, and the city's 300 or so parks and plazas, packed with evening strollers, live music, circus performers, and the like, are evidence of the kinds of things that the locals like to do. With street markets, art galleries, hundreds of cultural centers with vibrant programs, independent cinema, world-class theater, international concerts, and parties galore, the only dilemma is choosing just what to fill your time with. Our list includes the fabulous Sunday art and antiques market along San Telmo's main strip, Defensa, and another weekly festivity, the Feria de Mataderos in one of BA's farther reaches, the western neighborhood of Mataderos. Both of these weekend fairs feature live music and dancing, flea market shopping, artisan crafts, and enough food and drink to keep you going all day long. Buenos Aires has plenty of fun-filled options for during the week, as well - take a spin around the tango floor at the classic milonga at La Ideal, or cheer on the Boca Juniors at a soccer match in La Bombonera. Catch up on BA's latest street art with the Graffitimundo walking tour around Palermo, or check out what's on at the Ciudad Cultural Konex, home of the Monday evening La Bomba de Tiempo interactive drum ring. Explore BA's riverside green spot, the Reserva Ecologica, on bike, or take an organized tour - at night - with Urban Biking. From horse races at the Hipódromo to thrift hunting at the Mercado de Pulgas, one thing's for sure: if you're up for fun, Buenos Aires is ready for you.
