Charleston is the oldest and second largest city in the state of South Carolina.
Known for rich history, well-preserved architecture, a celebrated restaurant community and mannerly people, in October 2012 the Charleston area was named both "Top U.S. City" and "Top Destination in the World" by Cond Nast Travelers "2012 Readers' Choice Awards," the second consecutive year the historic coastal destination has received the No. 1 U.S. City ranking. In 2011, Charleston was named "#1 U.S. City" by Conde Nast Traveler's "Readers' Choice Awards" and "#2 Best City in the U.S. and Canada" by Travel + Leisure's "World's Best Awards". Also in 2011, Bon Appetit magazine named Husk, located on Queen Street in Charleston, "Best New Restaurant in America." America's most-published etiquette expert, Marjabelle Young Stewart, recognized Charleston in 1995 as the "best-mannered" city in the U.S, a claim lent credibility to by the fact that the city has the first established Livability Court in the country. In 2011, Travel and Leisure named Charleston "America's Sexiest City" as well as "America's Most Friendly." Subsequently, Southern Living magazine named Charleston "the most polite and hospitable city in America." In 2012, Travel and Leisure voted Charleston as the second best-dressed city in America, only behind New York City.
