The South's Best City: Charleston, S.C. | Southern Living

Charleston gains even more bragging rights as it is named the 'South's Best City of 2017' by Southern Living Magazine.

There were 13 various categories readers could vote for in the South's Best poll — from BBQ joints to drinking holes and everything in between.
