CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Holy City can add another top honor to a growing list.
The website GoPetFriendly.com ranked Charleston the number one city for pet travelers.
According to a post on the site, Charleston was selected from among 110 cities submitted by readers across the United States and Canada. The final two cities in the running were Charleston and Colorado Springs, and it was down to the wire before voters helped Charleston receive the last-minute victory.
"Charleston came out of nowhere this year to claim the title – not even having been nominated in the 2015 tournament," the site states.
GoPetFriendly.com says the Charleston area boasts plenty of dog-friendly activities, eateries and accommodations.
