The second annual Best of the Road campaign, announced by Rand McNally and USA TODAY, is rolling along.
More than 450 towns have been nominated by locals, businesses and CVB members to compete for a spot on the Best of the Road® Rally routes. Thirty finalist towns will compete in five categories to be named Most Beautiful, Most Patriotic, Friendliest, Most Fun or Best for Food.
The campaign also features a stories from RVers around the country and the option to submit your own. Every registrant has the chance at daily giveaways with prizes such as campground passes, E-readers and GPS devices.
Best of the Road was created to bring awareness to lesser-known tourism gems across America and supports small town economic growth.
“There’s a greater awareness of the locally-owned restaurants and the chefs in the area and what a valued resource that is. It’s helped people appreciate what they do and it gives visitors a reason to come,” Kelly Strenge, PR & Special Projects Manager Lafayette Convention and Visitors Commission, expressed passionately.
