European vacations might be back on the cards for US residents, but with long quarantines currently required on arrival and travel restrictions liable to change as soon as the next strain of Covid is discovered, you might still be better of staycationing this summer. Thankfully, you don't actually have to hop on a plane to feel like you're in the old country.
From a Danish settlement in California to a Florida town that was founded by the Spanish more than 500 years ago, plenty of cities across the United States offer the same charm and historic architecture as the European continent (castles and beer included!). Rethinking your vacation to Greece or Germany? Forget the uncomfortable red-eye flights and massive airport lines, and look no farther than these cities right here on home soil.
