National Geographic knows a thing or two about travel.

And those photos? The gold standard.

So it’s a pretty big deal that a South Carolina city has found itself on the iconic magazine’s “25 breathtaking places and experiences for 2023” list. The tagline over the feature is “Best of the World.”

Without further ado, that city would be … Charleston. The Lowcountry gem is listed in a section called “Culture: Places where history and heritage rule.”

In the culture section alone, Charleston appears among global heavyweights like ancient Rome and Cairo.

National Geographic’s Charleston-focused piece isn’t fluff, however, as it focuses on a very important topic: the upcoming opening of the International African American Museum, which is expected to debut in January.

“Importantly, the museum offers other ways for Black Americans to connect with their roots,” National Geographic writes. “Historians believe nearly 90 percent of Black Americans can trace an ancestor back to Charleston’s slave markets.”

You can read the culture section of the list here, and the full list here.
