Play associated audio

If you are looking for some great places in this country, look no further than Virginia. The American Planning Association places three sites in the Old Dominion on its annual Top 10 Great Places in America list.

The Association recognizes the Historic Hilton Village in Newport News as a "great neighborhood." The group says the neighborhood hasn't changed much since it was planned and built during World War II.

Duke of Gouchester Street in Williamsburg is recognized as a "great street." The planning association says the street is an authentic recreation of the "great street" of Virginia's 18th century capital.

And Virginia Beach's boardwalk gets the nod as a "great public space." It describes the three-mile long stretch of concrete as an integral part of the city's economy.
