One of the great things about Riyadh is that it has something for everyone. For history buffs, a visit to the National Museum will give you a sense of the vast history of the sights you'll later see. The exhibits are informative and engaging, making them a perfect activity for the whole family. Looking into rental cars in Riyadh will allow you to hop from sight to sight more quickly, and you can follow up your visit to the museum with a trip to Masmak Citadel, a pristine example of Saudi Arabia's storied past. For a break from the heat, relax in one of Riyadh's many shopping malls. As a regional and national hub, as well as a cultural center, Riyadh is home to both local artisans and internationally renowned designers.
Riyadh hosts several annual festivals throughout the year, but some of particular note are the Janadriyah Festival (in the outskirts of the city itself), and the Riyadh Book Fair. The two-week long Janadriyah Festival is held every February/March and showcases the cultural treasures of Saudi Arabia. For bibliophiles, the Riyadh Book Fair in March is an exceptional opportunity to hear some of the premier Middle Eastern authors discuss their works, both past and present.
