Dolores Hidalgo, Dolores Hidalgo
Concierge.com's insider take:
Just 25 miles north of San Miguel is the town of Dolores Hidalgo, where the first Mexican Revolution took place in 1810. These days, your first order of business should be to indulge in a favorite local treat—the ice cream that's sold in the quaint main square, and that comes in unusual flavors like tequila, corn, and shrimp. Then take in a dose of history at Museo Casa de Hidalgo and Museo de la Independencia before heading to one of the numerous Talavera pottery factories. On your way back to San Miguel, stop by La Gruta, a trio of natural pools heated by thermal hot springs.
