Vote To Keep Beacon In Running For 'Best Town Of 2016'

BEACON, N.Y. -- Beacon residents still have time to make their town come out on top and be named "Outside" magazine's sixth annual "Best Town of 2016," by voting Friday, the last day of the first round of competition between 64 towns from across the nation.

To come up with the 64 towns, "Outside" said it looked for places with access to trails and public lands, good restaurants and neighborhoods, and, of course, a good beer scene. Previous winners from the last three years were excluded to make room for hidden gems, underdogs, and towns on the rise. The magazine then asked their Instagram followers to nominate their favorite towns—Imperial Beach, Calif.; Mammoth Lakes, Calif.; Grand Marais, Minn., and Billings, Mont., came out on top.

But, don't worry, Beacon can still win even though it didn't make the top five. The contest runs until May 27, but residents need to vote Friday, to keep Beacon in the mix and moving up the chain.
