This is it!  Keep voting and sharing on social media!  The City of Duluth ousted Ashville, NC to stay in the running for the coveted title.  All the love for the Northland has kept the City of Duluth in the running to be named "Best Town in America" and we have one more hurdle, Provo, UT.  The contest, being run by Outside Magazine, started with 64 towns vying for the honors and now we are down to the just four.  Time to vote!

Let's recap, Duluth was up against Columbia, MO, in first round of the contest's Midwest part of the bracket and earned 15,512 votes to just 3,463.  In round two Duluth took on Athens, OH and won in a landslide of 23,541 to 6,330 vote.  The next town we took down was La Crosse, WI, with a 26,958 to 14,867 final tally.  Then we were matched against  Minneapolis, a town with a much bigger population, but apparently not enough love.  After beating Minneapolis we took on Ashville, NC and BAM!  We are now in the final Round against Provo, UT five of voting is open now through 11:59 p.m. (local time) on Sunday, June 15, 2014.

It won’t take much time and it’s simple to do! Here’s how:

You may vote once per round for each match up. The winners will advance until only two towns remain. (which will be the next round).  Then there will be a seven-day showdown to determine Outside’s Best Town 2014. The winner will be the town with the most votes on June 15.

Last I checked, we were up!
