The second annual Best of the Road campaign, announced by Rand McNally and USA TODAY, is rolling along. Â
More than 450 towns have been nominated by locals, businesses and CVB members to compete for a spot on the Best of the RoadÂ® 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.Â Every registrant has the chance at daily giveaways with prizes such as campground passes, E-readers and GPS devices.Â
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.
