Outside Magazine, a periodical about travel, adventure, health, and getting outdoors and having fun, is searching for the best town in the U.S.

Saugatuck, Detroit, and Bellaire have made it to the top 64 in their 2015 Best Town Ever contest!

Cast your vote to keep these Michigan towns in the running!

Outside Magazine says picking the towns to compete in their fifth annual Best Town Ever contest wasn’t easy:

We looked for places with great access to trails and public lands, thriving restaurants and neighborhoods, and, of course, a good beer scene—all while excluding the winners and runners-up from the past three years to make room for hidden gems, underdogs, and towns on the rise.


This year, they added a wild-card round in which the magazine's followers on Instagram nominated their favorite towns-- That's how Saugatuck made it into the running!

It is a bracket style competition in which towns are pitted against each other. Each week, the winning towns advance until only two remain. The top two will go head to head and whichever town has the most votes by June 5 wins!

Vote here to make Saugatuck, Detroit, or Bellaire the Outside Magazine's 2015 Best Town Ever!
