#1 Best in the U.S.


Once again, Charlestonians have been told what we’ve long-known to be true: Charleston is the best city in the States and one of the best cities in the world.

Just last week, Travel + Leisure announced that we took their #1 spot on their list of U.S. Cities for the seventh consecutive year.  In October of 2018, we took the top spot on Conde Nast Traveler’s list of Small U.S. Cities for the eighth year in a row.  We happily hold many other top-destination titles, as well.  As Conde Nast wrote on their website, “The city’s roots may be its rich Southern history, but Charleston stands fully in the now.”

Are you looking for modern takes on traditional southern-style cuisine?  How about a ghost tour in a historic jail?  Would you like to stay in a beautiful, top-rated hotel?  Are you interested in learning about Charleston’s role in the Revolution?  Does excellent shopping sound good, or are water sports and beach days more your speed?  The thing is, no matter what you’re looking for in your next corporate trip or family vacation, Charleston is the answer to all of it.  So, “if you’re a skeptic, raising eyebrows at the hype,” do as Travel + Leisure smartly instruct: “plan a visit for yourself.”

We’re so proud of our accomplishments and we can’t wait to show you why we really are the best city in the world!
