Each year, Outside Magazine scours the nation to find those dream cities that offer a balance of great culture, perfect scenery, stress-free and reasonable cost of living, and, of course, easy access to the outdoors. This year, for it’s 35th Anniversary issue October, Outside is calling on the public to help select the best one ever from a pool of ten finalists in their Best Town Ever Facebook app.
To select the finalists, Outside partnered with the non-profit American Rivers to find great places to live that have the usual dreamy quality-of-living criteria and also an active recreational engagement with nearby waterways-kayaking, fishing, boating, walking and bike paths, and riverfront parks – and a positive environment story.
The winning town will receive the official honor of Outside’s “Best Town in America” and will be featured in the October 2012 magazine cover, and on Outside online.”
The towns nominated include – Hood River, OR; Missoula, MT; Boise, ID; Nevada City, CA; Durango, CO; Ithaca, NY; Milwaukee, WI; Richmond, VA; Nashville, TN; Asheville, NC.
Voting officially begins at 12:00am EDT June 12, 2012 and ends at 11:59PM EDT July 9, 2012.
