America's Best Cities for Summer Travel
No. 19 Charleston
This quaint southern city is just a half hour from beaches—one reason, no doubt, that AFC voters ranked Charleston near the top for its overall quality of life. The city has walkable streets, charming boutique hotels, and the friendliest locals, according to AFC voters. If the summer temperatures happen to stray above 80, you can always duck into an air-conditioned store: the city ranked first in the country for shopping.
