Charleston Accolades

Just one hour from Brays Island Plantation is one of today’s top-ranked travel destinations: Charleston, South Carolina. In fact, Conde Naste Traveler awarded Charleston the title of being the “Top City in the U.S.” from 2011 through 2017. In 2012, the same publication named Charleston the “Top City in the World.”

So, what’s the big deal with the Holy City? Of course, the answer depends on the person. For some, it’s the food. In recent years, Charleston has become a mecca for foodies looking to enjoy the fresh seafood influenced by delicious Lowcountry flavors and led by an impressive list of culinary pioneers–several of whom have earned James Beard Award winner status.

Others are drawn to the good ol’ southern hospitality that is so pervasive in this part of the world. Charleston is also considered one of the most romantic cities in the world, making it a great destination for couples.

Whatever the reason, time spent in “Chucktown” is time well spent. And with it being so close to Brays Island, why not visit for a day trip?
