Agreed. Another common use of 'sites' is to refer to archaelogical sites. "Site" is a useful term in context because it can refer to an area which bears no relation to modern administrative and political boundaries.

All sites are places, but not all places are sites. Place is a general word and site is more specific usually its known what site one is referring to in a discussion. Your place is at the end of the table, you would never say, Your site is at the end of the table. So... 'At some sites,' it is understood in the conversation that you are referring to specific places, maybe building sites, maybe missile sites. 'At some places,' they sell food. could be any place it's not specific until you want more information. If you said 'at some sites' they sell food, it's understood more that you may be referring to something like a building site, a specific place, where food is sold.

Sites is more specific, it implies a common purpose between them. Examples would be sites for economic development or drilling sites.
