They say the third time is the charm and the city of Charleston is certainly living a charmed life in the eyes of Travel + Leisure readers. For the third consecutive year, they voted Charleston the #1 travel destination in the US and Canada. Rival magazine Conde Nast Traveler has voted Charleston as the top city for four years running. The accolades never stop for the Holy City as it was voted the second best city in the world. Kyoto, Japan took first place in the T + L poll.
Judgements were based on a number of categories such as landmarks, culture, the arts, food, people and value. “Charleston clearly keeps on delivering one of the most satisfying travel experiences in the United States and the world”, stated the magazine’s editor, Nathan Lump.
