Yay.....the readers of a magazine have spoken. Now, based on the number of replies to the poll, what degree of confidence would you assign to he results? Maybe 20%? The real scorecard is in the data where Charleston would be lucky to finish in the top 5. 150 year head start and you guys are being lapped.

Honestly, you have no idea what you're talking about. The magazine poll is just a representation, a sample, if you will, of the true public. No one is calling the poll results set-in-stone-worthy, but it is a good example of what happens when you get the majority vote. There is no doubt in my mind, based on just what I have seen in a measly year, that Charleston would be neck and neck with San Fran for best cities in the country. 1. Charleston, 2. San Fran 3. NYC, 4. Philly. I've been to all and ratings around the internet and beyond seem to put these 4 in the same pot. Feels good to have chosen wisely.

This number is skewed.

That's a list only of neighborhoods. The name of the city is there just to tell where the neighborhood is. A neighborhood in Spartanburg is on it, too. That might just mean that, just as the Greenville-Spartanburg corridor apparently has a concentrated area of higher income that typically attracts national chains before either of metro Columbia's two main areas of higher income, it also perhaps has some areas of more concentrated crime. But like my mother says, why compare? Anyway, I thought this thread was about Charleston and Columbia's metros.

Actually, I do know what I am talking about, the magazine poll is not a true sample of the public, no legitimate survey would use magazine readers as a sample to represent the true public. If they were randomly selected across the country, maybe. Even then, you would have to allow for tolerances.

If you put a lot of value in magazine polls, please let me sell you some Enron stock. As I have said, I like Charleston, it is a nice place. But, putting it in with SF, that's a whole different story top to bottom.

Glad you like like living in my home state for generations. But, even the biggest Charleston boosters than Iknow would laugh at the notion of being on par with SF.

But what matters the most is if you like the place. So, let's leave it at that.

The main hole I see is that saying a city is #1 in a travel magazine's survey of travelers' favorite city to visit and then saying that means it's the best city in the nation or world is a leap.

I have to agree with Cdata on this. Charleston was voted best place to travel on a TRAVEL magazine. In no way shape or form did it say best place in the nation to live but giving info and suggestions on things in Charleston which is an opinion. And I'm not saying y'all are saying that it is but that is what I'm getting from reading what y'all say.

Also everybody has their own opinion and cup of tea for places to live in and visit. IMO I will visit Charleston I will not live their. I love history but it has nothing over 700 ft. in it's skyline. I don't even plan on staying SC when I graduate, I'm going straight to NYU.

Most cities don't have anything over 700ft...

OT: I think 1mil is a conservative number especially with the new port being built
