New Orleans ranked No. 4 on a Southern Living list of best southern cities.

Why it matters: The magazine says, "There's no place quite like New Orleans." We agree.

How they did it: The rankings came together thanks to a survey last summer of more than 20,000 Southern Living readers.

  • The readers ranked Charleston, South Carolina, as the No. 1 southern city, followed by Savannah, Georgia, and Nashville, Tennessee.

Zoom out: The ranking was for the magazine's annual South's Best coverage, which examines the cream of the crop across the region.
