Hispanic Heritage Month: 5 Latin-American Destinations in the U.S. You Have to Visit

 Hispanic heritage

Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15th - October 15th) showcases the achievements of Hispanic Americans in many different fields all over the United States. During Hispanic Heritage Month, it’s all about celebrating the legacies these communities have left behind for the rest of us, whether it’s art, science, or historical events. In honor of this month, here’s a list of some of the different Hispanic communities around the country you should visit!

Little Chile (Chilecito), San Francisco

Little Chile

Chilecito, or "Little Chile" was established by Chilean miners during the Gold Rush. Once word got out that there was an abundance of gold in the Sierra Nevada foothills, thousands of Chileans left their homes for San Francisco and they built the town of Chilecito near present day Kearny Street. Today, you can see the commemorative plaque laid by the Chilean Consulate in 2003 in front of Café Zoetrape!

Mexicantown, Detroit
