Charleston, South Carolina has been named the #1 City in The United States by Travel + Leisure Magazine for eight years in a row now. This coveted award is voted on by Travel + Leisure readers through an annual survey based on the readers’ experiences in cities across the world.
Travel + Leisure thinks it’s no surprise Charleston made the top spot due to the city’s “history, architecture, culture, pleasant weather, gracious locals, and even proximity to the beach. But chances are, if you were to ask T+L readers for their top reason for their obsession with this genteel city, they’d say the food.”
In addition to being named the top city in the United States, Charleston’s infamous Wentworth Mansion made the list of Top 15 City Hotels in the Continental United States.
Some other cities that made a spot on the list of the best cities in the United States include New Orleans, Chicago, Savannah, New York City, and Honolulu.
