Coolest Small Town in 2013 ~ Update

Now that voting has closed for Travelers Rest to be nominated as "Coolest Small Town in 2013", we can see how we rank! We finished with 628 votes and 18 very supportive comments!! This is a big growth from the small numbers we had in the beginning. Looking at votes alone, we are number 15 out of 924 towns! Woo hoo!!! 
Here are towns that ranked in top 15 with votes:
(provided by Fay Choban)
Bay St. Louis, MS 9816 votes
Watkins Glen, NY 8437
Shepherdstown, WV 3207
Elkhard Lake, WI 2900
Eagle River, WI 2608
Camden, ME 2076
Le Claire, IA 1847
Mount Carroll, IL 1266
Berkley Springs, WV 977 (art community)
Mount Morris, NY 823
Quincy, CA 822
Flagler Beach, FL 802
Minocaqua, WI 777
Belfast, ME 749 (seaport town)
Travelers Rest, SC 628
According to Budget Travel they will take into consideration number of votes, comments, and their own criteria such as diversity in geography, attractions, architecture, etc. to pick their top fifteen towns. They will announce them in January of 2013 and then ask us to vote for which town should win. This is when voting will be super important, especially if our little town makes the top 15!!
I think it is awesome that Fay Choban thought to nominate Travelers Rest and that The Tribune  jumped on board to get the word out to everyone. It is so cool to see people get together to support something they love.
