Centro Historico is OK once in awhile; very overrated IMHO, and I am a history buff. If you are younger, a great hangout is Andares, the latest gleaming mall in Zapopan. The place has all the requisite stores and restaurants to keep you busy in a fantastic, upscale new community; other malls include Galerias, Pabellon, la Gran Plaza and the older Plaza del Sol. You can also catch a Mexican Pro Beach Volleyball tournament, Mexican Pro Basketball game, outdoor Alejandro Sanz concert, college (american) football game or Tecos pro Soccer game at Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara. You can go ice skating at Icelandia, or go for tacos at Tacos Tepeyac, the best. There are innumerable things to do; heck, just go walk around Providencia and explore a great neighborhood on foot.
And for those who look down there noses at malls, hey, I met my wife at Plaza del Sol 12 years ago!
