The readers of Conde Nast Traveler have once again named Charleston South Carolina the World's Friendliest City! Couple this recognition with Travel + Leisure's World's Best City Award for the third straight year and it's easy to see why the world is flocking to our charming city. In 2015 over 5 million people visited Charleston and apparently we treated them well.
If you live in the Holy City you experience this on a daily basis, just something you expect. What is interesting though is how many other top rankings Charleston has garnered in the last 5 years. Here are just a few:
World's Best City- Travel+Leisure 2016
Top City in the U.S.- Conde Nast Traveler 2011-2014
Top City in the World- Conde Nast Traveler 2012
