Travel + Leisure readers: Charleston's full of sexy people (and the city's not bad either)

When asked to rank 35 well known American cities, Travel + Leisure readers put Charleston at the top of the list.

In the annual America's Favorite Cities guide (in which Charleston generally places quite well) readers of the publication in print and online are asked to rank 35 cities ranging from Savannah to D.C. to Portland on a myriad of factors from boutique hotels (Charleston's No. 1) to friendliness (we're No. 1 again) to wild weekends and ethnic food (boooo, we're No. 21 for each of those last two.)

All-in-all we did quite well coming in No. 2 overall (just behind Savannah, again with the booing), but we were No. 1 according to locals.

Enough rehashing though, go check out the results here.

And get proud of Charleston on our city lists topic page.
