Here are a few things Michoacan (Morelia) is known for:
The Monarch butterflies migrate twice a year in the millions to the butterfly sanctuary. And the best part is you can tour & view them on horseback!
Natural Hot springs:
First Spanish colonial city.
Charreria (original rodeo of both men & women)
To the north of Morelia is Lake Pátzcuaro, one of Mexico’s highest lakes.
I know there are a heap more…but will save those for a later post.
