Charleston, SC has been named the friendliest, most welcoming city in the whole world

WATCH: Conde Nast magazine asked its readers to rate cities by "friendliness," especially with respect to where they felt the most welcome.

Charleston, South Carolina took the 2016 world title. Readers gushed over the Holy City's southern hospitality.

Locals seek ways to become ever more welcoming to all.
Travel + Leisure Magazine (2015 World's Best)

It's a friendly trend -- last year Travel + Leisure magazine named Charleston the second-friendliest city in the world (behind only Galway, Ireland). 

How about the rest of the United States?

Conde Nast also conducted a national survey for friendliest U.S. cities.

Coming in second was last year's friendliest, Park City, Utah -- noted for the customer service at resorts -- while third went to Savannah, GA (taking over Charleston's 2015 spot).

Nashville, Tennessee got the #10 spot in the world ranking due to its "character, perfect size, great live music, delicious restaurants, friendly people, affordable accommodations -- the list goes on."

Six out of the top 10 friendliest U.S. cities are located in the South. 

How can you not enjoy the views and southern charm?

Charleston is #winning.
