The readers of Condé Nast Traveler have voted Charleston the No. 1 city in the United States for the third year in a row, putting the city ahead of No. 2 Santa Fe, N.M., and No. 3 San Francisco, Calif.

In this year's Readers' Choice Awards, readers praised the Holy City's "sand, sun, history, good food," and "insanely nice" locals. The next Southern city on the Top 10 list is No. 7 New Orleans, La., followed by No. 9 Savannah, Ga.

The Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau celebrated the news with a YouTube video featuring appearances by Charleston Grill Executive Chef Michelle Weaver, former American Idol contestant (and 2012 City Paper Music Awards Singer of the Year) Elise Testone, and a whole lot of locals throwing up the number three like it was a gang sign. Go ahead on, Charleston.
