The accolades for the Holy City keep on coming, this time from real estate website http://www.movoto.com. They recently compiled a list of the top 10 most exciting American mid-sized cities and Charleston came in at #2!
The rankings were based on a number of factors including the number of live music venues, percentage of residents aged 20 to 34, the nightlife scene and other quality of life measurements. One interesting factor that was taken into consideration was the percentage of fast food restaurants per capita, the lower the better.
Providence, RI came in at #1 and Syracuse at #5 so make of it what you will but it was nice to see Charleston in the top ranks.
While the image of Charleston used to be a sleepy southern town, that concept is quickly changing due to the influx of younger citizens and the burgeoning IT industry, or “Silicon Harbor” as it is nicknamed. There are certainly no shortage of fun and exciting things to do in Chucktown and for the complete list and profiles of the top 10 most exciting mid-sized cities, just click here:
