Here Are the 'Great Places in America,' According to Planners

October 9, 2018View for printing

The American Planning Association has named fifteen "Great Places in America" for 2018. Among them are a bustling main street that spans two states, an amphitheater and park created from a brownfield, and a walkable Berkshires town famous for its flower bridge.

The Great Places in America awards recognize streets, neighborhoods and public spaces; five from each category per year. The APA says that the awardees "illustrate how a community coming together creates lasting value."
