Feb 15, 2013 —  America’s big cities are undoubtedly known for their celebrated restaurants, bars, people, sports teams, stadiums, history, and culture. Often, these people, places, and history culminate at a plaza in the heart of a city.

At American plazas in Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, DC, and San Francisco, tourists and locals alike discover authentic landmarks, shop in reputable department stores, grab coffees at beloved local coffee shops, and get drinks at legendary neighborhood bars.

You can head over to Harvard Square in Boston, where George Washington took control of the Continental Army, and attend one of the numerous block parties or live concerts. Travel to Union Square in San Francisco and hop on a historic cable car or simply pop into a single-room eatery.

Don’t forget to swing by the famous Times Square in New York City, which doubles as one of the busiest and most visually stimulating urban centers in the entire world. If it’s a quieter plaza you’re looking for, check out the Georgetown Waterfront in Washington, DC, a destination that offers bike paths and a front row view of practicing crew teams.

Stop by one of the many beautiful American plazas for a centralized taste of the culture and history of your hometown or the city you’re touring.
