Charleston has been ranked the No. 1 city in the United States…again! Yes, that’s right. Six years straight Travel + Leisure has ranked Charleston the No. 1 city. Not only that, but Charleston also was ranked No. 10 in the best city in the world! But, honestly, to the ones who call Charleston home, are we surprised?
It has been topping the magazines “Best of” list for U.S. cities because of the coastal charm, renowned restaurants, rich history and more. It topped cities such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, with even some friendly competition with our fellow southern cities such as Asheville, Nashville, Savannah, and New Orleans.
In fact, Charleston is the only U.S. city to be ranked in the “Top 15 World Cities” for 2018.
Travel + Leisure writes “The jewel of the South Carolina coast has crowned our list of favorite American cities since 2013. But that doesn’t mean the Lowcountry destination isn’t evolving. Thanks to an influx of business, Charleston is bustling with revitalized energy. A new generation of restaurateurs, helmed by Sean Brock of Husk and McCrady’s, is turning the city into an international food destination. Writes one reader: ‘I love the history, the art, the grits, and the proximity to Kiawah and other beautiful coastal areas. This is the perfect city for a girls’ weekend, a family vacation, or a romantic getaway.’”
