Bucket List Notes: Visit Charleston, Stay at Wentworth Mansion

Our hometown is buzzing with excitement after Conde Naste Traveler 2012 "Readers Choice Awards" named Charleston the Top City in the United States and the Top City in the World!

Conde Naste Traveler notes, With the “best beaches in the southeast,” it’s no wonder Charleston took first place in our list of Top 10 Cities in the United States.  The seaside proximity doesn’t just allow for some picturesque views, but for some one-of-a-kind seafood as well.  “The food, history, architecture and people are wonderful,” said one reader.  “A bucket list city!”

We agree on all fronts. Charleston is indeed bucket list material. This summer, Wentworth Mansion assisted Lesley Carter (big dreamer and lead blogger behind Bucket List Publications) cross Charleston off her extensive and awe-worthy bucket list. Lesley leads a fascinating life. She trots the globe in search of unique, once-in-a-lifetime experiences and inspires readers to do the same. After reading about Charleston's top honors in Conde Naste's 2011 Reader's Choice Awards, Lesley traveled to the Holy City and relished in the luxury and homey comforts of the Wentworth Mansion. Lesley noted her stay at the Wentworth Mansion as "icing on the cake" on an already perfectly charming experience. During her stay, Lesley's top rated Charleston to-dos were, "Stroll through the city market or along one of the beautiful beaches, explore the aquarium, dine aboard a dinner cruise, and relax at Wentworth Mansion...you’ll swear you were part of a movie set. The southern lifestyle and pace is awaiting around every corner." Lesley's travels have taken her to (almost) every place in the world you could dream of. When we read we'd been dubbed her "Hotel of the Year", we were extremely flattered. Read about Lesley's cupola views, turndown chocolates, sweet dreams and family breakfast on the Bucket List Publication Blog. Thank you, Lesley for sharing such beautiful photos and a lovely write-up! We hope you to see you back in the South soon. Now we suggest you add the Wentworth Mansion to your bucket list, visit us, and then cross it off. Learn more about our luxurious and family-friendly inn here.
