Savannah makes another list — a really insipid one; Charleston nowhere to be found

Travel and Leisure’s list of America’s Strangest People ranks Savannah as #7.

Ahead of us are, beginning with the top spot, New Orleans, Santa Fe, Austin, Portland (OR), San Francisco, and Providence.

What makes Savannahians strange? According to the non-answer from T&L:

Folks in this southern city tend toward the eccentric, whether they’re strolling River Street, poking around in cool antique stores, or filing into the famed Clary’s Café after church on Sunday.

River Street? Poking around antique stores? Clary’s?


We typically are neck and neck with Charleston in magazine lists like this one, but our South Carolina rival is nowhere to be found in the top 20.
