Washington DC is probably the most European city in the US in terms of its architecture and planning and its lifestyle which is very centered around mass transit. New York City has too many skyscrapers to be European. Charleston SC and Savannah are European in a British kind of way as is the New Orleans Garden District. Part of the French Quarter around Jackson Square does feel very French though a lot of the rest of the Quarter also has a Caribbean in addition to a European feel.

In terms of architecture, parts of Washington DC literally follow a Greco-Roman architectural style, especially in areas connected to politics. You can't get much more European than that.

American cities all have huge suburbs with residential houses.
At night, the suburbs have nothing going on.

European cities do not have that.

I used to live in that area (Coolidge Corner) and I agree. There are also parts of Cambridge and other Boston suburbs that look like that. I was born and raised in Boston and I've spent a lot of time in Europe as well as other American cities. Boston is probably the most European American city. That doesn't mean it's a carbon copy of a typical European city, but among American cities, it comes the closest.

DC is the most European city. Monuments, squares, architecture, and roundabouts. Take the metro and get off at Minnesota Ave. for a real taste of heaven
