Even with the many local lovers of fried anything, late night snacking and food options at every corner, a University of Wisconsin study has found Charleston to be the sixth healthiest county in all of SC.

The study looks at environmental, livability, and socio-economic factors when weighing in on which county is deemed the healthiest. The array of hospitals and fresh food markets helped keep Charleston near the top.
