There’s yet another reason to stay in a Charleston beach house.  It’s your home away from home near the best small city in the land.

The accolades for the Holy City keep rolling in, especially now that we seem to be smack dab in the season of “top ten” and “best of” lists.

One of the most highly anticipated (and well-regarded) of all lists has just been released – the Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers Choice Awards for 2016.  And they just named Charleston the favorite place to visit in the U.S.

This makes the sixth year in a row that Charleston has been named the top city in America.  They have broken up their top city award into two categories – big and small cities.  So Charleston is officially the best small city in the country… in other words, the most liveable city there is.
