Default Most European like US cities?

I tried doing a search on this, but came up with nothing. Maybe I put the wrong keywords in.

Are there any US cities that are European like (a lot of street/outdoor life, etc?)

Boston and the Old parts of New Orleans

I also think Santa Fe and San Francisco look semi European

I was reading a Travel and Leisure article about Portland, Oregon, and they said that it resembles Europe alot to them.

Thanks for the replies, guys! I figured Boston would be pretty much #1 on the list.
I was having a little debate with someone yesterday, with them saying they liked European cities a lot better than American cities simply because of the style of life that there is there. As in, nice architecture (sp?) and lots of outdoor type life.

How would you say Phoenix or a suburb of Phoenix would be able to compare to a European city? Or is it all around American?

I think any of the really old eastern city's (America's first cities) would be more European.

Our ancestors were all mostly European, which of course they built more European style cities as that is what they knew.
