Querétaro is not a big state but it sure does have a vast variety of places to visit. There are wineries, places that make cheese, large underground caves, artisans who make colorful cute dolls, and even a giant monolith to climb.

In addition, travelers who venture to the eastern portion of this state will have to traverse hilly and winding roads through the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve. As a perspective, this region of Querétaro is somewhat similar to the Smokey Mountains located in the eastern region of the United States.

The capital city (by the same name as the state) is dotted with several very well-groomed plazas complete with fountains, and outdoor restaurants to enjoy a nice meal. A variety of historical museums to explore can fill an afternoon quite nicely. Visitors to this city can also still see the impressive elevated aqueducts built in the early 1700s. This manmade trough brought fresh drinking water from the nearby hills to the residence of the city.
