Savannah has been rated second-friendliest city in the U.S. in a poll of Condé Nast Traveler readers
, beating out long-time rival Charleston (which finished third) and rating below only Park City, Utah.
The magazine asked its readers to rate a city's "friendliness" in the Readers’ Choice Awards survey, "especially with respect to where you felt welcome, or not," a magazine spokesperson says.
The Savannah entry says:
"Bubbling with Southern charm," the locals of Savannah "are so welcoming and hospitable," "fun and talkative."
