10. Capitol Hill: Denver, CO
“Millionaire’s Row” is a beautiful neighborhood found in Denver, Colorado. Basically, many of Denver’s wealthiest citizens decided to set up an opulent enclave of mansions. Many of these towering homes were demolished during the Great Depression, but houses like the Fleming- Hanington House and Alfred Butters House still remain.
A more recent section of the neighborhood, nicknamed “Poet’s Row,” features a slew of Art Deco-styled apartment houses that bear the names of famous literary figured, from Mark Twain to Emily Dickinson. These apartments are surprisingly popular among the city’s younger bohemian crowd and has earned itself 10th place for most beautiful neighborhoods.
9. Victorian Village: Columbus, OH
The houses that line Victorian Villages streets are anything but cookie-cutter. This area is known for its gorgeous Victorian houses (hence the name), which were built when a streetcar line first ran along Neil Avenue around 1900.
8. Savannah Historic District: Savannah, GA
As the oldest city in Georgia, it’s only fitting that Savannah contains one of the largest historic districts in the nation, spanning from Gwinnett Street to the Savannah River. This landmark neighborhood was designed around a grid of 22 individual park squares and has half of Forsyth Park falling within its boundaries, making live oaks decked with Spanish Moss an integral part of the area’s allure. This neighborhood is full of so much history and is a must see in the South.
7. Hyde Park: Chicago, IL
The Hyde Park area is considered to be a prized locale for development in the Chicago area. Many of the luxury hotels that used to stand on the lakefront have now been turned into apartments, buildings and condos. It is a gorgeous must-see location in the Chicago area.
6. Sea Cliff: San Francisco, CA
Sea Cliff is considered to be one of the most incredible views of the Golden Gate and the bay. It is crammed with striking, million-dollar homes where many celebrities reside. This pretty, scenic district is private, too: it’s essentially off-limits to tour buses and vans, forcing tourists and gawkers to drive themselves there.
5. Garden District: New Orleans, LA
Nola’s Garden District gets its name from the original design of the neighborhood with each of its blocks holding only a few houses to allow for large gardens to surround each home. As time went on, and the amount of green space per block was reduced by new constructions, the Garden District’s opulent Southern architecture increasingly became the star of the show. New Orleans has such an amazing sense of history.
4. College Hill: Providence, RI
College Hill was the site of the first permanent colonial settlement in Rhode Island. The area currently contains one of the Providence’s most extensive and distinguished collections of historic architecture. Located on a steep hill generated from the east bank of the Providence River, the area has always been primarily residential in nature.
3. Bungalow Heaven: Pasadena, CA
This 16-block Pasadena neighborhood contains approximately 800 bungalows and exemplifies the early 20th century’s Arts & Crafts architectural movement. Recently, Bungalow Heaven has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places and has been designated as one of the “10 Great Places in America” by APA.
2. Central Park West Historic District: New York, NY
New York’s Upper West Side is packed with landmarks, including some of the earliest apartments in the city. It is filled with architectural pedigree and cultural education. The entire neighborhood is also bordered on its east side by Central Park, the most famous public park in the country. If you are lucky enough to own real estate in New York City, this is where you should be.
1. Beacon Hill: Boston, MA
Between the red brick sidewalks, the classic Georgian architecture, and the gaslights casting their amber glow down the narrow streets, this colonial neighborhood stands out as the most beautiful neighborhood in America. The row houses on Beacon Common (the oldest park in the country), and the whole neighborhood is equally beautiful in winter and summer.
