Large cities like Seattle, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, are undeniably impressive, recognized worldwide as centers of commerce, culture and innovation. There are several smaller cities across the United States, though, offering their own unique charm and character. Here are our top seven.

Tips / Destination

Charleston  is home to a booming culinary scene, including many iconic fine-dining establishments. If you want to sample the city’s best food without going over your budget, check out our list of cheap eats.


Early Bird Diner 

Stop in Early Bird Diner for Southern classics. An order of biscuits and gravy starts at $5.50. Brunch, lunch and dinner service is available, but breakfast is the real draw. The spot is popular, so arrive early or expect to wait in line.


The Griffon Pub 

Located steps away from the waterfront, the dive bar is a popular spot for locals and tourists. Beer specials start at $2.50 and weekday lunch specials cost less than $10 for Southern favorites like fried chicken, smoked brisket sandwiches and oyster po’ boys.


Queen Street Grocery 

Opened in 1922, the corner store serves up unique sandwiches, paninis and crepes for $10 or less. Smoothies and other beverages are also available. Open daily.


Tattooed Moose 

While you can find cheap eats on the regular menu, Happy Hour at Tattooed Moose cannot be missed. Beers start at $2.50 and snacks are in the $1–4 range. The spot was featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.
