Maybe the arcaheological sites are close but you can see some few ruins that day, for example Tlatelolco or Templo Mayor, because there are arcaheological sites that can be seen from the streets.
Travel Tips for Mexico City
Take a day trip to...
Take a day trip to Teotihuacan! The ruins are absolutely mesmerizing. Our hotel arranged a cab for us that took us there and waited until we were done. Cab driver was one of the few people who spoke English and, as usual, tried to sell us something. Pyramid of the Moon has a better view, so if you are short on time – go to that one first.
Visit the Santo Domingo Plaza,...
Visit the Santo Domingo Plaza, the second most important colonial square after the “Zócalo”.
The old plaza was twice officially renamed in the 20th century: first as the Corregidora’s Garden (in honour of Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez, an independence patriot), then as the May 23 Plaza (in commemoration of the National University’s autonomy, won in 1929). However, for the public the name has always been simply “Santo Domingo Plaza”. It is one Mexico City’s loveliest public squares, partly because it is surrounded by a number of buildings having great architectural and historical significance. The Santo Domingo Convent, the Palace of the Inquisition, the old Customs House and the Evangelist Arcade were all nerve centres in Mexico’s spiritual, economic and social life in colonial times. In addition, the Plaza is all the more significant because all buildings around it date from the same period, making it one of the capital’s most homogeneous squares.

Poverty is present everywhere downtown.
One trick some have is they will peel and slice a mango and deliver it to you on a stick right there on the spot on the corner of the street.
Less annoying than begging and delicious too.
go to Dolores Olmedo Museum, Xochimilco
Dolores Olmedo was a very very wealthy woman, who donated her Hacienda and estate to Mexico. She was a world traveller and friend of many artists, including DIEGO RIVERA and FRIDA KAHLO, and there are many small personal paintings on display of both. The grounds are extensive and beautifully maintained and you can see roaming peacocks, and other wildlife. She had an extensive collection of pre-Columbian artifacts which are also on display.
This is a place you can spend tranquilly, right near Mexico City!! The gardens and buildings are gorgeous and there is a lovely place to have luncheon or a snack on premises and watch the peafowl and best of all, the food is very reasonably priced! You can combine this wil a visit to the nearby "hanging gardens" of Xochimilco and make it a full day, if desired.
Easy to get to via metro line 2 to Taxquena Station, then an easy change to the light-rail line to La Noria station. It will take about an hour each direction from center of Mexico City. The museum is a 2-block walk south. Admission about $3.20, but FREE on Tuesdays!
There are several large malls in Mexico City. The nicest of them are Centro Comercial (CC) Santa Fe, Parque Duraznos in Bosques (small but ultra-modern), Pabellon Bosques (not so much for shopping than ice skating :), CC Perisur, Palacio de Hierro in Polanco, CC Plaza Satelite (huge and crowded), Mundo E (in Satelite with a couple of discos).
