We know there is a lot to love in South Carolina. The state is full of some fantastic places to live and visit whether you are looking for small-town living or city-dreaming. We report a lot about the fantastic small towns our state is home to. But now it’s time for some of our best cities to shine. And shine is just what they are doing. Southern Living Magazine recently released its 2023 The South’s Best Cities list and two South Carolina cities were featured. The list is voted on by the publication’s readers, and I have to say they did a good job selecting. The number one and two best southern cities are two of my all-time favorites (one is in SC) that epitomize southern hospitality.
When it comes to North Carolina, Asheville ranked the highest, and even higher than some big-time cities! Not bad for a North Carolina mountain town. Keep reading to see which of the North and South Carolina cities were named as some of the best southern cities. You’ll also find the top 10. Read more about them and how this list was curated on Southern Living’s website. We know how wonderful the Palmetto State is, but hearing it confirmed by experts never gets old!
