Our happy hour fact to amaze your drinking buddies with.
According to the readers of Travel + Leisure, Charleston, S.C., features the best-looking people in the United States.
Visitors to Travel + Leisure's website were asked to rate 35 cities on how attractive their residents are, among other characteristics
. Only the opinions of those who had visited the city, but didn't live there, were considered.
Following Charleston in the top five were: San Diego; Savannah, Ga.; Miami and Salt Lake City.
On the other end of the spectrum, Memphis is deemed to have the least attractive residents, edging out Baltimore and Philadelphia for this dishonor.
When you ask tourists to rank how attractive folks in a city are, what you are really getting is an accounting of how good-looking the folks who work in hotels, restaurants, bars, etc. are. Which is all the more reason to book a trip to Charleston.
