The local economy has been thriving for years and there are plenty of opportunities for employment as well as entertainment.
Monterrey also has an excellent school system; some of the best schools in all of Mexico are located here! In addition to this, Monterrey offers several opportunities for education at all levels: from elementary school through college or university (and even graduate school).
The city is also home to one of Mexico's largest and most important universities, ITESM. If you're looking for something a little more laid back then there are plenty of museums and historical sites around town. Monterrey is also known for its shopping opportunities; the local markets have everything from food stalls to electronics stores.
