Summit Avenue Historic District, St. Paul. The largest intact collection of preserved Victorian mansions in the US!

Beacon Hill, Back Bay, the North End, and the South End in Boston.

However, if you're looking for great weather check out the Battery in Charleston, South Carolina.

I love Inman Park...beautifully restored homes, walkable to Little 5 Points, and proximity to the Inman Park/Reynoldstown MARTA station. If only I could afford it.

The Old Louisville Historic District is amazing! I was fortunate enough to live there for awhile.

I would say Richmond Virginia's Fan District and Monument Avenue area:



Quote:
Monument Avenue, located in the city's Fan district, has the distinction of the being the only street in the United States that is a National Historic Landmark. The tree-lined street is home to several monuments.
~City Data

Quote:
The Fan is a district of Richmond, Virginia, so named because of the "fan" shape of the array of streets that extend west from Belvidere Street, on the eastern edge of Monroe Park, westward to the Boulevard. The Fan is one of the easterly points to the city's West End section, and is bordered to the north by Broad Street and to the south by Cary Street. Many cafes and locally owned restaurants are located here, as well as historic Monument Avenue.

The Fan is significant for having one of the longest intact stretches of Victorian Architecture in the United States.







For more pics look at primarily page 11 of this thread (the 2-3 pages before it show 2 other great urban neighborhoods, Carytown/Museum District and Church Hill...both of Richmond, VA): Pics of richmond


By the way, just to set the scale of the neighborhood........

Quote:
It is the largest intact Victorian community in the United States and encompanses over 100 city blocks.

Druid Hills, Atlanta - one of Frederick Law Olmsted's final projects, the setting for Driving Miss Daisy consists of homes from the 19th and early 20th century.

Oh yes, Druid Hills is a beauty as well. My school was plopped right in the middle of it, and I just loved driving in that neighborhood.

East End in Galveston is really nice. Kind of similar to the Garden District in New Orleans.
