Budget Travel’s “America’s Coolest Small Town” – Vote for Vevay, IN!

With 152 nominations and a few additions by Budget Travel Magazine, Vevay, Ind. was selected as one of 22 American small towns that stand out from the crowd. Along with the nomination, Vevay is in the running for the publications list of Top 10 “America’s Coolest Small Towns”.

The town of Vevay would love to take top honors and would appreciate residents and visitors votes and a brief comment sharing their fond experiences and “local favorites” of the town.

According to the magazine, the contest will select towns according to “quality of life, arts and restaurant scenes and proximity to nature.” It specifies that “cool” doesn’t me quaint so voters should think “edgy” and “avant-garde galleries” not country stores. It is also looking for towns on an upswing that are drawing attention and attracting new residents.

Voting Ends April 3rd, so be sure to vote today!  Please cast your vote and comments from 10am-8pm EST at:

According to the Budget Travel article, visitors’ comments, photos and videos submitted on Vevay’s behalf will also be part of the judging process.
