Travel and Leisure Magazine World's Best Awards for 2011 are out. Readers were polled for the study and Charleston was selected #2 to New York City. Charleston replaced San Francisco in the #2 spot. The charm of historic Charleston, easy access through our delightful airport, and amenities such as beautiful beaches, championship golf courses and excellent fishing add up to a wonderful place to visit and live.
Charleston's Planters Inn was selected as #10 on their list of Inns with under 100 rooms. One of our favorites, Charleston Place, was ranked #26 for hotels over 100 rooms. The Sanctuary at Kiawah was ranked in the top 100 hotels in the world..
Our family loves Charleston. This ranking just reconfirms what a wonderful lifestyle this city offers. Weekends and are filled with boating, beaching and dining at one of downtown's great spots. For special weekend we love to spend a night or two at Charleston Place - kinda funny considering it is a 20 minute drive from home. For a totally different world we spend special weekends at Kiawah Island Resort, but it's much further away - 40 minutes. Live in Charleston and it's just press "THE EASY BUTTON" every day. No traffic jams, no big city problems and the friendliest people in the world.
Coming to Charleston? We are happy to help with recommendations.
