NOT A SINGLE ONE. You probably shouldn't even go here. You should see how many people on the Montreal thread get UPSET over whether or not their French-speaking city is "European."

I will say that most of the Europeans I've shown around definitely peg San Francisco as their favorite U.S. city. I think the never-ending rowhouse housing stock and few bus lines running on electrical overhead cables is somewhat familiar to them, but they don't say it reminds them of Europe.

Leavenworth, Washington - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Good choices. I'll throw Charleston and Savannah into the mix.

Great Answer!
King Street in Charleston is amazing, Idk much about Savannah but i know its a really old city so of course it must have some European flavor

Just saying English is just as European as French.
