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

Ludington and Marquette have made it to the top 64 in their 2016 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 sixth 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."


It is a bracket style competition in which towns are pitted against each other. Votinh in the first round goes through Friday.

They've organized the contest by the type of town—river, culture, beach, and mountain regions will battle it out until there's one of each remaining. The top two will go head to head and whichever town has the most votes by May 27!

Vote here for Ludington or Marquette to be the Outside Magazine’s 2016 Best Town Ever!
