With its cobblestoned streets, colonial architecture and strong cultural scene — not to mention plenty of interesting new places to eat and shop — it’s easy to see why San Miguel de Allende has become a haven for travelers (and, admittedly, lots of retirees). There is no shortage of galleries displaying works by local and international artists, plus boutiques selling the kinds of fashion, jewelry and home designs you’d expect to find in a stylish capital like Mexico City, which is just three hours away. Here’s how to make the most of your day in this colorful and charming getaway.
