Charleston named best city

ADVERTISEMENT

The city of Charleston, S.C., was named the best city in the world in October by Conde Nast Traveler magazine.
Cities were judged on the following criteria: culture/sites, friendliness, ambiance, restaurants, lodging, shopping.
“Today, when grace and charm are so hard to come by, the city’s spell is more powerful than ever,” Traveler wrote in its story about Charleston. “In the last few years, Charleston has become a magnet for thousands of escapees from the world’s stridor and stress. Most washed up here casually, with no intention of putting down roots, but found themselves sucked in by the easy pace, the relatively low cost of living, the climate, the beauty of the surrounding Lowcountry, and something deeper: a feeling that here, as in few other cities, it is still possible to live the Good Life.”
The city is home to several megayacht marinas, including Charleston City Marina, Charleston Harbor Marina, and The Harborage at Ashley Marina.
The city also was named the No. 4 Top City in the U.S. and Canada in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards, the No. 3 Best Weekend Getaway by U.S. News & World Report, and one of the top 21 places to visit in 2012 by Fodor’s Travel Guides.
