    9 Reasons Charleston, S.C., May Not Really Be The No. 1 U.S. City

    Condé Nast Traveler rated Charleston, SC the USA's No. 1 City for three consecutive years. Though Charleston may be aesthetically appealing, here are nine factors Condé Nast may have overlooked.

    9. Like any other city, parking is a pain.

    8. If you decide to bike, just know that the city isn't top-rated for being "bike-friendly."

    7. The tourists of this city tend to walk super slow on our heavily crowded streets, which can be a huge problem if you have somewhere to be.

    6. The cruise lines attract “Heavy-drinking, balloon hat, flip flop, fanny pack" wearing tourists - the type that should be avoided at all costs.

    5. Second Sunday is great, unless you're working it.

    4. Palmetto bugs seem to infest every nook and cranny here... It's practically a plague!

    3. Even some of the nicest hotels in Charleston have multiple reports of bed bugs.

    2. If you're looking for the great/amazing food Charleston boasts, you better know where you're going. Don't fall into a tourist trap!

    1. Though Charleston may hold the top spot for cities, North Charleston is rated No. 7 in crime.
