Last week Conde Nast put out a list of the ten friendliest cities in the world. Charleston was #4 and one of only two US cities to make the list, the other being Savannah, GA (#9, incidentally).
Since Mark and I moved to this little peninsular corner of South Carolina two months ago, one thing has become abundantly clear: hospitality has a capital “H” in Charleston. It is not a PR byword or a hashtag – it is a religion. Everyone, from the cashiers in the grocery stores to the highly-skilled bartenders to the proprietor of a bed and breakfast who actually spent part of her afternoon trying to help us find a house, has been eager to go above and beyond. It all seems to boil down to one thing: Charlestonians adore their city. They know what she has to offer, and they are yearning to share it with you.
