GQ Celebrates “Miniopolises” Like Charleston

GQ credits Charleston's surf culture as a contributor to "cool"

GQ magazine again put Charleston on a good list – this one for ‘ Coolest Small Cities in America.’ The men’s fashion pub urges readers to schedule vacations in “miniopolises” like Charleston, ‘where top-notch food comes straight from the farm and your third round is on the house.’

They went on (and on!) “‘Mind-blowing shrimp ‘n’ grits just minutes from an awesome southern surf scene. To wake up under the ornate fourteen-foot ceilings of the Wentworth Mansion is to wonder if some southern heiress took you home with her the night before. The stately digs were once the city’s finest home, and they make you feel not like you live in Charleston but like you own it.”
