The April 2019 issue of ‘Southern Living’ named Charleston as the ‘South’s Best City’ for the 3rd time straight. The article is called, “”Why Charleston Is the South’s Best City 2019: Plan a visit, and expect a warm Southern welcome” and was written by Caroline Rogers. She introduces the article this way:

“I had high expectations when I set my sights on Charleston for the first time. A place doesn’t win the title of South’s Best City three years in a row without a gift for hospitality and plenty of charm. The city brims with both—that’s evident—but there’s more. Charleston is home to hundreds of years of history and is still constantly reinventing itself.
