Maybe some German heritage towns along the Missouri River in Missouri (Osage and Gasconade Counties). German settlers thought the Missouri River resembled the Rhine.

New Orleans does have French characteristics still, particularly buildings like the Arsiline convent and St. Louis Cathedral. The French Quarter feels more French than Spanish despite the current buildings dating mostly to the Spanish period. But the area around Jackson Square certainly feels like it could be in France.

Charleston SC and Savannah and the New Orleans Garden District have a colonial British feel as does a lot of the Old South.

It's beautiful and the dense streetscape is European-style, but the architecture to me (even without the flags) still screams "American".

St Augustine definitely. I would say not quaint but it's very European Village-esque. Cause quaint to me sounds like remote or secluded and not insanely touristy like St Aug is. But then I looked up quaint and I guess it doesn't imply what I thought it did...so, yeah, St Aug.

Because it was the prevalent style for that era. Americans call it Federal, in the UK and Canada it's known as Georgian.

It even exists in Canada, but to a smaller extent I believe.

Georgian

Georgian
I've also seen some good examples of it in Dublin, Ireland.

Oldenburg, Indiana is a very German-influenced small community near I-74 between Indianapolis and Cincinnati.

Neither of those city remind me of Britain(more Southern Europe). Closest might be Savannah, but it has a distinct old American style to it.
