Cheap Thrill

USA Today offers the recession-conscious vacationer Six Secret Mexican Gems for the Budget Traveler, with S.M.G.#2 being one of the most expensive cities in Mexico:


At once one of Mexico's most modern cities and a colonial gem, Queretaro offers visitors both the chance to immerse themselves in the city's fascinating 475-year history and enjoy a sophisticated dining and nightlife scene. Queretaro is often overlooked by tourists who come to the region to visit the more popular nearby town of San Miguel de Allende, but it's well worth a few days' exploration, and is generally easier on the wallet.

They say "overlooked by tourists" like this is a bad thing. But we were hoping the article would elaborate a bit on this "sophisticated dining and nightlife scene," since in two-and-a-half years of living here, we've somehow managed to miss it. It doesn't.
