Three expected cities didn't even rank in the list. Charleston, SC
Savannah, GA and Asheville.

They paid off someone to avoid the notoriety.

If you read the CNN article that made the list, these are "under the radar" cities, so Charleston, Savannah, Nashville, Asheville, etc. weren't considered.

Still, it's good to be included! And the write-ups are more thorough than you usually find on this sort of list.

Has to be the downtown area and Ghent, because the rest of the city is terrible. Downtown Norfolk is pretty nice.

This is not a list of the most charming cities in the South; it is a list of 15 overlooked charming cities in the South. I really hate it when local media completely change the title and meaning of these types of lists and it happens very often.
