Outside Magazine is looking for the "best town ever" and Park City, Utah is a top ten finalist!   The winner will be decided via Facebook voting where participants can vote for their favorite finalist beginning today.  "We're not choosing the winner based on the number of votes, but more by the passion shown by the voters for their town," said Jonah Ogles, an associate editor for Outside Magazine, "We just want to find out why people love Park city and what makes it a great city."

Outside Magazine selected America's top ten best towns based on nine categories including food and nightlife, access to green space, skiing, biking, surfing, paddling, running, great gyms and sports shops, and low commute time. Outside of surfing, I would say Park City tops all the categories.  The winner of the "Best Towns" competition receives a feature story in the September issue of Outside Magazine portraying the reasons why the destination deserves this honor.  I can't think of a better way to show off our town. 

The top ten finalists are featured on Outside Magazine's Facebook page where the public is encouraged to cast their vote for their favorite town. Outside Magazine fans are able to vote once a day for the destination of their choice today through June 13, 2013, when voting concludes. Voters can also enter to win a five-day adventure to one of the top ten finalist destinations.

When you vote you will be prompted to select an icon that represents what you love most about the city. Icons include food and nightlife, biking, skiing and easy access to green space. You have to opportunity to tell Outside exactly why you love Park city and why it should be the Best Town of 2013.

Remember, you can vote once a day for the next three weeks, and the more icons you select the more likely Park City will be chosen as America's "Best Town."
