Cultural capital of South America, Buenos Aires remains one of the largest cities on the continent, serving as a point of departure for exploring the rest of the country.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Basilica de Lujan and Vinos Uribelarrea. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Usina del Arte and Delta El Tigre. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Buenos Aires: Temaiken Biopark (in Belen de Escobar), Puerto de Frutos (in Tigre) and La Plata (Palacio de La Legislatura & Museo de La Plata). There's much more to do: work some fitness into your day at Las Costanera Publica, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia Parroquial de Exaltacion de la Cruz, enjoy some diversion at Racing Club, and see the interesting displays at Fragata ARA Sarmiento.
