Is there any city or place in the USA where they use metric system? Like on roads, stores or anywhere else.

Some places near the Mexican border use both types of units I think, as well as pockets here and there, but its difficult to find. In stores mesurements for products are often given in both English and Metric units.

For a while I think Deleware Route 1 was numbered in kilometers in anticipation to the metrification of the United States, but was converted to miles after a bit.
