Monterrey, along with Guadalajara, are the nicest cities in Mexico. It's a shame that there is so much violence between the various narco Mexican drug gangs. The day we left Monterrey last year, 39 people were killed in a Monterrey Casino by narco drug gangs.

One of my favorites places to visit in Mexico. A great place to buy shoes and leather goods. I love the food of Nuevo Leon and in particular the El Rey Restaurant who specialize in cabrito which is to die for. Just hanging out on the main shopping street on the weekends is a great experience. It's to bad the drug cartel violence has spilled over into this wonderful city. Nearby is Saltillo which is a great city to visit on a day trip and to visit the the nearby vernicular and caverns.

This is my hometown so this review is heavily biased.
Monterrey is a great place to live and grow up. Don't know if it is that great for a tourist since it's not close to the beaches
If you are going here stay at a hotel in San Pedro close to the Calzada del Valle. This main street is closed on Sundays to cars and becomes a paradise to run/walk/bike.
I recommend a vist to the soccer stadiums so you can see how passionate are people about soccer here.
As for restaturants I recommend the Granero Grill (awesome food and ambiance) on the pricey side and on the cheap side any taqueria in the Centrito.
Right now it's a bit dicey to go given the whole drug war going on so be careful.
