CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Almost two months after Travel and Leisure ranked Charleston as one of the country's "snobbiest cities," another magazine's survey insists we're the friendliest in the country.
The list released by the Conde Naste Traveler ranks Charleston first on the list of friendliest cities in the United States.
A tidbit on their website reads:
With "sand, sun, history, good food, and friendly people," Charleston is a consistent hit with the travelers who venture to this "gracious and beautiful" city (in fact, it's also the No. 1 city in our entire Readers' Choice Survey, with high scores for ambience, restaurants and culture). Nearby beaches and impressive architecture draw visitors, but it's the "insanely nice" locals who enhance "magnificent" bed and breakfasts and "amazing shopping." "The charm of this city brings me back every year," praised one devoted fan.
