It may come as no surprise to alums, current students or recent visitors to the College of Charleston, but the fair city that our school resides in was just named “No. 1 City in the U.S.” by the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine.

This is the sixth consecutive year that the readers of Travel + Leisure have ranked Charleston the No. 1 City in the U.S. A wealth of art, restaurants, historic landmarks and polite citizens ultimately put Charleston on top once again.

The magazine’s editors write, “The jewel of the South Carolina coast has crowned our list of favorite American cities since 2013. But that doesn’t mean the Lowcountry destination isn’t evolving. Thanks to an influx of business, Charleston is bustling with revitalized energy.”

The College also got accolades from the popular travel magazine last year when Travel + Leisure readers named CofC “America’s Most Beautiful College Campus.”
