After ranking as the #1 city in the U.S. and Canada in T+L’s World’s Best Awards – for the third straight year – readers of T+L voted CHS the #2 “Destination of the Year” award, behind only Nashville, TN. Allison Prang has the announcement here for The Post and Courier.
News Flash – CHS is a great place to visit. Travel & Leisure magazine’s readers poll announced CHS in its World’s Best Awards as the #1 city to visit in all of North America and #2 in the world; we lost by .03% to Kyoto, Japan, but we beat out Florence, Rome, Seville, Barcelona, San Francisco, Savannah, Vancouver, and on and on. The only other U.S. city in the top 10 was New Orleans at #10. Here is the link to the T&L list. And an incredible feat: four of the Top 5 Small City Hotels in the Continental U.S. are in Charleston – the Planters Inn (#1), the French Quarter Inn (#2), the Wentworth Mansion (#4), and the Market Pavillion Hotel (#5). And, the Inn at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton was named the #5 top resort in the U.S., while The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island was #29.
