Outside Magazine is asking readers to vote on the best towns of America for 2013.
None of the finalists are from Great Lakes states.
What’s up with that? Here at Echo, we’re just not okay with that.
This year’s nominees are: San Diego, Calif.; Boston, Mass.; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Spokane, Wash.; Honolulu, Hawaii; Greenville, S.C.; Park City, Utah; Bozeman, Mont.; Carbondale, Colo. and Waitsfield, Vt.
Outside claims its 10 finalists are the cities with the best outdoor recreation and the greatest quality of life, affordability and job prospects.
Readers can vote for finalists on Facebook or on the Outside website.
But Echo readers can vote right here, right now for Great Lakes cities that should be recognized as both livable and adventurous and with endless recreational opportunities.
Nominate the Great Lakes towns Outside overlooked in the comments below. Justify your choice. If we get enough nominees, we’ll come back at you with a poll.
