Thank you Blue Man 100 for the beautiful photos! When I lived in San Antonio, I always meant to drive down to Monterrey, but never made it. I don't think the drive would take 4 hours, would it? I remember every December in San Antonio, there would be many people from Monterrey who drove up for Christmas shopping. The first time I encountered these people in the North Star Mall, I wondered where all the Spaniards came from, having been to Spain several times. Then someone explained to me that it was the more upper class people from Monterrey who tend to be more pure European.

Anyway, the city looks beautiful, and I can't believe such beautiful, huge mountains are so close to southe Texas. To me, the city looks like a cross between Spain and the U.S., if that makes sense. I laughed when I saw an H.E.B. and Carl's Jr. in your photos!

I'd definitely think so, yes.
It's also close to downtown Monterrey and the Barrio Antiguo.
