Charleston made the Wilderness Times Top 25 Outdoor Cities list! The website looked at all across the country to find the best cities for the outdoor lifestyle. The Holy City ended up sliding into 23rd place once all the dust settled. So if you’ve been looking for a good way to escape to nature, especially given the restrictions of the past year, it’s good to keep in mind that Charleston’s got you covered!

The website considered a number of factors. From number of nearby national and state parks to population density and housing costs. They weighed each criteria to rate cities on a scale from 1-10. Charleston’s final score was 5.71. Factors like our good weather, and over 70 local trails for people to enjoy, helped put the city over the top.
