People love traveling to the Southern region of the United States. Southern charm is an unforgettable feeling, and so many cities in the American South are buzzing with tourists from all over the country, even the world, to experience the famous Southern Hospitality, and there’s no better way to experience that than in luxury hotels.
These days, there are a few Southern cities that stand out in travel magazines. Charleston, South Carolina is at the top of the list of best cities to visit in the U.S., and has been topping the list for quite some time. A port city that was founded all the way back in 1670, Charleston is known for its cobblestone streets and rich historical neighborhoods, like the elegant French Quarter and Harbor.
