1. Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston boasts a rich history, beautiful architecture, a vibrant culture, good weather, kind residents, and is close to the beach. However, it’s likely that if you asked them what their favorite thing about this affluent city was, they would reply the cuisine. However, it would be wrong of us to neglect to note how much the populace values the city’s friendliness.
2. New Orleans
One reader opined that “everyone ought to visit NOLA at least once.” Be sure to explore the city’s opulent neighborhoods, sculpture-filled parks, and hip Warehouse District beyond the famed Bourbon Street. The hotel scene there has also expanded. One of my favorites is the Hotel Peter & Paul, which made the 2019 It List of the Best New Hotels in the World.
3. Santa Fe, New Mexico
With “the vistas of the mountains, the culture, the shopping, the restaurants, and the wineries,” as one reader put it, earthy, artistic Santa Fe continues to amaze readers. All in one day, you may take in the centuries-old adobe architecture, hundreds of art galleries, and outdoor adventure.
