Every year, The New York Times publishes a list of the hottest places to travel. Typically it's full of far-flung international destinations, and the 52 Places to Go in 2017 list was no different, with places like Stockholm, Sweden and Osaka, Japan making the list. But surprisingly, this year's list also included the of Greenville, South Carolina — even going as far as to call it the next Charleston.

A is in order, perhaps?
Here are a few photos to convince you how beautiful Greenville, South Carolina actually is.
