San Miguel de Allende – The Heart of Mexico
Pam will be taking us with her on a trip to San Miguel de Allende, her favorite winter destination, describing its many Cs – Climate, Culture, Creativity, Color, Cuisine, and Cost. High in the cool hills, this colonial gem of cobblestone streets and picturesque churches inspires artists with its color, character, and light. Founded in 1542, the city is a mix of Hispanic and Mesoamerican influences, its buildings a combination of baroque, neoclassical, and neogothic architecture. So join Pam for an exploration of the destination awarded this fall by Travel + Leisure “Best Overall City in the World.”

Get on 93N, Rte 1N, or 95N toward 95N/128N toward Peabody and Gloucester.
