Travelers Rest overnight moved to the number three place in Budget Travel’s Coolest Small Town Contest. In my wildest thoughts I would not have expected this to happen. Thanks to everyone out there who continues to vote for us ever day. We have almost 900 votes and 27 comments. Right now the number two spot has over 1200 votes. The first phase of this contest goes till the end of the year so anything is possible.
The top two spots are in West Virginia, then us followed by number four in Colorado and number five is in Virginia. Definitely the south has some cool small towns but I already knew that.
Last week we went to the 2013 number one coolest small town, Beaufort NC. This was a side trip from an outing we took to New Bern NC, another spectacular town. Beaufort was charming. Lots of nice shops and boardwalk along the ocean.
