Travel + Leisure readers ranked American cities by their ability to captivate. 

No. 1 Charleston

25 of 22

It has horse-drawn carriages, world-class antique shops, and some breathtakingly attractive residents: this South Carolina city dazzled readers with its charm offensive. To wrap yourself in charm (and Frette linens) at night, check in at the 18-room Zero George Street, comprised of five historic homes in the Ansonborough district, where you can take low-country cooking classes from the executive chef. Readers’ favorite sport in Charleston was shopping, like the sparkling estate jewels at the century-old Croghan’s Jewel Box or the sustainably-made candles (in aromas like bergamot-and-basil) at Candlefish
