VOTE Grand Marais for "Best Town EVER" - an Outside Magazine Contest

VOTE! SHARE! REPEAT! http://bit.ly/BestTownGrandMarais 

Grand Marais has been nominated by social media followers to compete for its second “top town” title in two years. Outside Magazine asked its Instagram followers to nominate their favorite towns to add to their curated list of 60 towns. Four towns, out of 800 submissions, were selected to particpate in the larger competition for a total of 64 towns. 

The contest is organized by the type of town—river, culture, beach, and mountain towns will compete against each other until there's one of each remaining. Then they'll face each other for the overall title. 

“Grand Marais is competing in the ‘beach’ category,” says Linda Kratt, executive director of Visit Cook County. “First, we have to win against the other beach towns. Then we’ll compete against winners of other categories.

You can vote daily during the five day match-up, so mark your calendars to visit this site (http://bit.ly/BestTownGrandMarais ) by 11 p.m. on April 29; again April 30 - May 4, May 5 - 9, May 10 - 14, May 15 - 19, and May 20 - 27.

Other beach competitors include: Bayfield, Wis.; Fairhope, Ala.; Bellingham, Wash.; Milwaukee, Wis.; Bolinas, Calif.; Cape May, N.J.; Ludington, Mich.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Yachats, Ore.; Miami, Fla.; Duxbury, Mass.; Pacific Grove, Calif.; Islamadora, Fla.; Wilmington, N.C.; and Ketchikan, Alaska.
