“Travel and Leisure” magazine just released a list of the best cities in the world, and Charleston, South Carolina came in NUMBER ONE.
The list is based on a survey about a city’s sights and landmarks, culture, food, friendliness, shopping, and value. That whole “value” thing really knocks out a lot of the biggest cities, which you’ll see from the rest of the top 10 . . .
Chiang Mai, Thailand . . . San Miguel de Allende, Mexico . . . Florence, Italy . . . Luang Prabang, Laos . . . Kyoto, Japan . . . New Orleans, Louisiana . . . Barcelona, Spain . . . Savannah, Georgia . . . and Cape Town, South Africa.
“Travel and Leisure” also did their rankings with just American cities. Charleston, New Orleans, and Savannah are the top three. The rest of the top 10 are . . .
Santa Fe, New Mexico . . . Nashville, Tennessee . . . San Francisco . . . Chicago . . . New York . . . Austin, Texas . . . and Asheville, North Carolina.
