Charleston Rated #10 in Top 50 Vacation Destinations by

Friendliness. Cleanliness. Comfort. Quality.

As a resident, there’s no doubt that Charleston is one of the best places in the world to live, but now the Holy City has proven, once again, to be one of the best places in the world to visit. Charleston was named as one of the top 10 vacation destinations in North America on a recent top 50 list by The award-winning site, which helps travelers find and book hotels, flights, rentals, and more, ranked the top 50 cities in the US and Canada for the level of comfort, friendliness, cleanliness, and overall quality of the destination based on verified Expedia reviews. Here’s what they had to say about Charleston:

“Charleston’s got charm, and there’s no denying it. Earning every inch of its top-ten status, this city’s best things to see and do rival those of any destination of note. Let it woo you as you stroll through the historic district on a walking tour with Charleston Footprints. You’ll see the elaborate architecture, 18th-century ironwork, and detailed doorways the city is famous for. If the neighborhood sweeps you off your feet, stay at HarbourView Inn, which, true to its name, offers one of the best vantage points in town. Once you’ve rested up, take a short walk to Charleston City Market, where you could spend a whole day getting lost in art, food, and culture. Pick up a sweetgrass basket while you’re there—handwoven from indigenous bulrush, they’re quintessential Charleston. Saving the best for last, reserve a table at Husk Restaurant for an heirloom meal steeped in low country roots.” Lily Rogers, Viewfinder
