Halls are often used as entryways into an establishment or they may be special rooms within a building. As such there are many halls around the world associated with various tourist sites. These are some of the memorable halls we have encountered in our travels. Note that I have not included “city halls” in this series.
These assorted “halls” can all be found in the United States.
