Thanks so much to all of you who took the time to vote for Travelers Rest in the Budget Travel Coolest Small Town Contest. After the first round of voting we were in the top 15 and go to the second round of voting which finished last week. I don’t have any official results yet but it looked to me like we were in 11th place, .2% behind number 10. I don’t know how many votes that was, they just showed percentages. Last year they featured the top 10 towns but had a tie for first place.
This year’s first place winner was very clear. The winner was Lititz, PA a town of 10,000 or twice Travelers Rest size. They had about 25% of the vote and the next town had about 14%. Unless they give us a tie for 10th place this is the end of the road for this contest.
My community really got involved from business owners, schools, churches, City Council, Chamber of Commerce. At the very least it was a great community building effort and we did get in Budget Travel as one of the top 15 which I am very happy about. Will see what we can do next year!
Thanks to all of you for sharing in my fun.
