Outside Magazine Cover 2011Okay Charleston Porch friends. Now is your chance to show the love you have for living alfresco in this amazing town!

From Outside Magazine: “For the past 15 years, we’ve scoured the nation to find America’s best places to live – those dream towns that offer the balance of great culture, breathtaking scenery, reasonable home prices, low-stress living, and, of course, easy access to the outdoors.”

The writer of the sentence above was obviously jotting down observations while meandering in and out of King Street’s art galleries and boutiques, relaxing at Battery Park, or surfing on Folly’s waves.

Outside Magazine has narrowed the list down to 10 finalists, and we have made the cut!! Now we all need to vote Charleston as the best town to give our city a great, big pat on the back that is so much deserves. Each town will be ranked based on votes, along with submissions of photography and writing that illustrate what makes it so great. Perhaps I will submit a little something from the ole’ blog?

Charleston SC as Outside Magazines best town in AmericaI wonder if I can submit my entire blog! Because after all, The Charleston Porch celebrates exactly what the contest is trying to find – a city that encourages life outdoors, comprised of diverse, laid-back residents and tourists who appreciate everything that Charleston is. And if my favorite English teacher – Mrs. Kaplan – is reading this, I apologize for the run-on sentence. Charleston is just too great cram between a capital letter and a period.

So click here and VOTE!
