To answer the first post: Not really. We're European enough.

Frankfurt, London, Paris, Lyon, Marseille and Milan.
Next time i go visit that part of the world i'm only gonna go to UK and Ireland. Italy, France and Germany had wayyy too much concrete, almost every building is made out of this very ugly white-tannish concrete and everything was so compact and small.

But to the point where you can't stand them and find them levels worse than anything you would see regularly here in N. America?

Yes, French, Italian and Spanish cities on the Mediterranean coast are a disgrace to nature, you have probably the worlds most beautiful coastline but the shops and the hotels that overlook the water are just run down looking and alot of times you have to cross a street to get to the beach.

In Florida the hotels are big, tall, more spread out and you can walk from your hotel to the beach without crossing a busy street.

I don't even know what to say. I don't think the majority of these western European cities are ugly at all, and I think that's why they are so often looked to as elegant and sophisticated and are incredibly touristy.
