Over a period of six weeks, voters will narrow an initial bracket of 64 towns down to one winner: the kind of place with top-notch restaurants, vibrant farmers’ markets, friendly neighborhoods, and unparalleled access to hiking and biking trails; all categories that make up our great city.  So how can you vote?

The “Best Town” will be revealed on August 1st, and OUTSIDE will feature the final 16 towns in its September 2015 issue. Vote now, and vote often to bring home another win for Birmingham!
