America’s Coolest Small Towns
Budget Travel Magazine hosted a “Coolest Small Town” contest with its readers using online voting. The population had to be less than 10,000, it had to be a place on the upswing and starting to draw attention, and the town had to have a good quality of life in terms of the arts, restaurants, and proximity to nature. These are towns with an edge – not just quaint.
Here were the Top 10 winners. Have you been to any of these? Should your town be on the list? Let me know!
