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

October 9, 2018

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."
