For the third consecutive year, Charleston has been named the #1 U.S. City/Condé Nast Traveler/ Reader’s Choice Award. Listen to Charleston resident and former American Idol contestant Elise Testone sing about some of Charleston’s many charms!
Based on six categories: atmosphere, ambiance, culture/sites, friendliness, shopping, and restaurants. Charleston ended up being #1 among all of the US cities and #5 worldwide! I especially like the fact that they include friendliness as one of the factors as that is what I enjoy the most about living in Charleston.
The raves about this town continue to pour in and a tip of the hat to the people at the Charleston Visitors Bureau for their work in promoting this area.
This award and other accolades help make Charleston a hot market for visitors and boosts the local economy significantly. Let’s hope we can keep it going and make it four in a row next year!
