Here at Sabal Homes, we know living in Charleston, SC is amazing, and Charleston gets lots of praise for its beauty, history and quality of life. But recently, we got the granddaddy of all awards: Condé Naste Traveler named Charleston the best city in the WORLD. Yes, world! We’re used to being included in the company of top 10 cities in the U.S. pretty often, but the world? That’s an entirely different ballpark!
Condé Naste rated Charleston the world’s best vacation destination (and we’re here to tell you it’s a pretty awesome place to live too!) based on votes from readers of the magazine. They rated cities based on five criteria, which included ambiance, friendliness, lodging, restaurant, culture/sites and shopping. We agree – Charleston’s pretty much got that all wrapped up!
Charleston even beat out Cape Town, South Africa and Florence, Italy for the top honors! We love this video the Charleston Convention & Visitors Bureau put together as thanks:
Some of Charleston’s past honors include being named the Most Mannerly City for many years in a row. Folks down here are pretty polite and willing to help their neighbors and newcomers, alike. If you’re new to Charleston, you won’t feel like a stranger for long.
King Street was also named one of America’s best shopping streets by U.S. News & World Report; the Wall Street Journal named Charleston a top “brain gainer” for its growth in the past decade in number of adults with college degrees; CNNGo also named Charleston a world’s best city; and Travel + Leisure ranked us #2 city in the U.S. and Canada.
The awards list goes on and on, but you get the idea: Charleston is awesome! If you’d like to relocate to Charleston, please give us a shout, as we’d love to get you a brand new Charleston-area home in some of our lovely neighborhoods like The Ponds in Summerville, Foxbank Plantation in Moncks Corner or The Commons at Grand Oaks in Charleston. Give us a call at 843-388-8483.
Come on down, ya’ll!
