18 US Cities That Could Pass For a European Destination

Redbook Logo By Jessica Booth of Redbook | Slide 1 of 19: The COVID-19 pandemic has upended every aspect of people's live, including travel. Americans are banned from traveling into most European countries for the foreseeable future, and even if flying overseas were possible, a lot of people would probably opt out. Fortunately, you don't always have to board a plane, passport in hand in order to experience some European charm. There are plenty of American cities that look so European, you'll feel like you've just landed after a 10+ hour flight over the Atlantic. With charming city squares, Old World style architecture, European style food, and maybe even some expansive fields of tulips or Cyprus trees, these American cities and towns will leave you feeling you've transported into a completely different country. Just be sure to keep the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's travel recommendations in mind and be mindful of the fact that some states have imposed travel restrictions. But if you're ready to experience something new in a safe way, book a trip to one of these cities ASAP.
