Charleston Lauded as One of Sixteen Friendliest Towns by Magazine

Charleston has been included in a list of the the region’s friendliest towns by Blue Ridge Country magazine. The sixteen friendliest towns were selected from the total votes sent via email to Blue Ridge County magazine. Many of the voters cast their ballots after reading about the campaign in social media sites and local bulletin boards.

“The people of Charleston make our city a friendly and welcoming place to be throughout the year and especially during special events when more people come here,” Charleston Mayor Danny Jones said. “I am blessed to be mayor of my hometown, and I am grateful for how our citizens provide a hometown feel to people who are here for a few days or for a lifetime.”
