Short-haul travelers, rejoice: the top city in the world, according to Travel + Leisure magazine, is just south of the border.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico snagged the number-one spot on the mag’s annual list. The 2017 rankings were determined by survey results from readers who rated cities on their sights and landmarks, culture, food, friendliness, shopping scenes and overall value.

With history and greenery galore, San Miguel sure is gorgeous.

Mexico has been having a moment lately in the travel community: Two of the country’s other cities, Tijuana and Puerto Escondido, landed on the New York Times’s list of top places to visit this year.

San Miguel is a mesmerizing mashup of cobblestone streets, leafy courtyards and eclectic corner stores, with food markets and historic churches in between. Travel bloggers recommend renting a house when you visit for a full taste of local life; American retirees have been known to flock there for permanent stays. Days in San Miguel might include visits to the buzzy main plaza or Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel church, followed by an authentic Mexican meal.
