October 15, 2013 | Charleston Region
We don’t have to be reminded of how many great things there are about being part of the Charleston region, but every once in a while something happens that causes us to pause and say, “Wow, we live here!” Today’s announcement that Charleston has once again been named the #1 City in the U.S. in Condé Nast Traveler magazine’s 26th annual Readers’ Choice Awards is one of those moments.
For the third consecutive year, Charleston out-scored all other U.S. cities in the categories of Culture, Friendliness, Atmosphere, Restaurants, Lodging and Shopping, making it the country’s top destination. To celebrate, the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau has produced a gorgeous video that shows off Charleston’s beauty and style. This year, they commissioned an original song titled “Charleston: Three Ways,” which is performed in the video by Charleston resident and former American Idol contestant Elise Testate. The video features many recognizable Charleston area landmarks – check it out:
