Alaska's Talkeetna Nominated for America's Coolest Small Town


Did you know that one of Alaska’s great towns, Talkeetna, is in the running as one of The Coolest Small Towns in America?

For the past five years, Budget Travel magazine has helped its readers discover travel beyond the big cities to experience something different:  America’s Coolest Small Towns.  Each year, they profile up-and-coming American towns that stand out from mainstream America.  Equal parts hip and humble, these edgy small towns offer visitors a truly authentic experience. For the third year in a row, the editors of Budget Travel decided to again engage their readers to nominate and vote for their own favorite small towns and Talkeetna, AK is in the top 20, but will need many more votes to break into the top 5!

The online poll for the Coolest Small Towns in America is currently open for voting (last year over 439,000 votes were cast) and will remain open until February 11, 2011:  http://www.budgettravel.com/bt-srv/coolestsmalltowns/CST2011.html.  The winners will be profiled in Budget Travel magazine’s 2011 September issue.
