Charleston- The Friendliest City in America

Charleston BatteryWant to live in a town where everybody knows your name? Look no further than the southern gem that is Charleston, S.C. Last month, Conde Nast Traveler readers once again picked the Holy City as the friendliest city in all of the U.S.! Others in the top 10 included nearby Savannah, San Antonio, New Orleans and Asheville.

The magazine noted that many readers expressed the fact that Charleston embodies “Southern hospitality at every turn—so much so that they ‘would consider living there full time.’” Lucky that we do! They also said that “Charleston is the total package.” We agree!

If you don’t live here full time, but want to, Sabal Homes is here to help. We can build you a brand new Charleston home in Lowcountry style that takes advantage of the area’s southern beauty with porches, decks and high-end interior details. We build homes in a variety of Charleston neighborhoods both inside and outside the city to fit every price range and provide convenient access to the airport, shopping and biggest employers in the area.

This isn’t the first time the Holy City has been lauded for its Southern hospitality. Charleston has received the Most Mannerly City award from etiquette expert Marjabelle Young Stewart countless times. Travel + Leisure also ranked Charleston the No. 1 city in the U.S. and Canada for the second consecutive year this July.

In case you’re curious who readers voted as the most unfriendly city, the honors went to Newark, N.J. Us southerners better steer clear of that area, especially when we’re so used to Southern charm!
