    Don't waste your time visiting Times Square. There are tons of other incredible places that deserve your attention.

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to share the best kept travel secret in their hometown. Here are some of their suggestions.

    1. Santa Maria presso San Satiro; Milan, Italy

    The site where San Satiro is located has origins dating back to the 10th century, although the current church that stands there wasn't built until the 1400s. Although not as famous as Milan's Duomo, San Satiro provides countless examples of fine Renaissance art, including frescoes and sculptures.

    4. Blessington Street Basin; Dublin, Ireland

    5. Blackstone Boulevard and Swan Point Cemetery; Providence, Rhode Island

    Although it may just seem to be a 1.6 mile long median between two roadways, Blackstone Boulevard is one of Providence's major landmarks and is enshrined in the National Register of Historic Places. It's renowned amongst locals as one of the most beautiful places in the city to go for a walk or bike ride. Off the Boulevard is Swan Point Cemetery, itself on the National Register of Historic Places, the final resting place for Rhode Island notables ranging from numerous governors to author H.P. Lovecraft.
