Charleston Named Number One City… Again!

July 16, 2013

Charleston is on a roll! The latest accolade for the Holy City was announced earlier this month: Travel + Leisure readers voted Charleston the “Top City in the U.S. and Canada” in the Travel + Leisure 2013 World’s Best Awards. Charleston was also ranked among the Top 10 Cities Overall in the popular annual survey (we come in at No. 7 on this list). This year is the 18th year Travel + Leisure has conducted this survey-based awards program. The results are featured on and in the August issue of Travel + Leisure, on newsstands this week!

Travel + Leisure readers also gave high marks to many of the area’s hotels – six to be exact! Congratulations to Charleston Place, Market Pavilion, Wentworth Mansion, Planters Inn, French Quarter Inn and The Sanctuary Hotel on Kiawah Island – all outstanding places to stay if you’re visiting the Charleston area.

In celebration of this announcement, Travel + Leisure magazine is conducting a #TakeMeToChs sweepstakes using Instagram and Twitter. Visit to learn how you can enter to win one of 12 fantastic Charleston area packages.
