America's 51st state has a lot more going for it than just a plethora of gringos. The temperate climate, mountainous scenery, colorful history and the tasty Mexican food are but some of the reasons why so many Americanos flock to this charming city in the silver hills just a few hours north of Mexico City. Ironically enough, the only thing there really is to complain about in San Miguel is all the stinkin' gringos who never go.

Located in the mountains of Guanajuato in central Mexico, the colonial city and UNESCO World Heritage Site, San Miguel de Allende is one of the country's most unique destinations. Walk on cobblestone streets throughout downtown's immaculately preserved historical center, quaint, tree-lined plazas, cathedrals and residences built in the 17th and 18th centuries and you'll get the sense that you're almost traveling back in time.

Europeans and Americans love this colonial town. It is considered a historic site and Unesco heritage of the world. The main square is the heart of San Miguel de Allende. Lots of restaurants and galleries! Nightlife is good during weekends, in a bohemian kind of way though.

My mother would take me to San Miguel de Allende every year since I was 8 and I could not ask for a better vacation in Mexico.
My favorite part of San Miguel is sitting in the Jardin watching moms carrying their children on their back, selling flowers and candy to the tourists. Hearing the bees above your head roaming the trees, and smelling the fresh elotes being cooked.
All while staring at the overpowering, intricate architecture of the Iglesia ahead.
San Miguel is without a doubt the most amazing vacation anyone could take.

San Miguel de Allende is an artist town full of vibrant buildings lining cobblestone streets. Because of its artistic physique many ex-pats, tourists, and foreigners are attracted to San Miguel bringing with them excellent quisine, high-end resorts, and a feeling of safety. Wander the streets munching on fresh fruit and checking out some traditional Mexican art along with innovative works from foreigners.
