Best Mountain Towns Supporters

We asked, and you responded.

Blue Ridge Outdoors readers showed their hometown support in our Best Mountain Towns and Outdoor Cities poll by casting over 60,000 votes. The winners will be announced in next month’s issue.

Thanks to the communities across the Blue Ridge for rallying behind the contest. We especially appreciate the efforts of these partner communities who helped make the poll such a success. These towns have always been great supporters of our mission: inspiring people to go outside and play.

Take a look at last year’s Best Mountain Towns.

Coming in November:

Final results and detailed coverage of the Best Mountain Towns in the Blue Ridge. All 38 nominees will featured, with special in-depth coverage of our top three towns in each category.
