One of my favorite small cities, the scale and quality of architecture is outstanding.

Also Newburyport MA is a fine historic city, small enough it's not much bigger than some of the historic neighborhoods in the major East coast cities.

Fashion Island Shopping Center, Newport Beach, CA. Few locations have so much rich culture and history condensed into such a compact space.

Just kidding!

I was impressed by it myself. I wouldn't go as far to say it seems more English than American, it still felt like a New England city with a better than average historic downtown. But maybe someone from another part of the country would feel differently.

Well, eastern New England. Western New England usually doesn't look quite as historic or as brick. Portland feels rather similar to Portsmouth in architecture but larger.

Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati, Ohio.

It's such a beautiful neighborhood with so much history and culture. Everyone's a drunk monk during Bockfest and the goetta is fantastic!

It is easy to walk to several restaurants and shopping.

Do you have any favorite neighborhoods that sound similar?
I love German Village. Multiple coffee shops, dive bars, delis, the famous Book Loft, all within a short, scenic walk. Such a lovely area.
