The nominations are now closed and at some point within the next week or two, finalists will be selected and readers will get to vote for a winner. (BTW- In 2013 the winner was Lititz, Pennsylvania.)

I recently came across a list by Budget Travel of  10 Coolest Small Towns in Europe.

Last year BudgetTravel readers voted Lititz, Pennsylvania the Coolest Small Town in America for 2013. Kim and I checked out Lititz while visiting Pennsylvania Dutch Country, home to the Amish and filled with farms. We enjoyed our visit but I don’t remember it standing out any more than the other small towns in the area. Lititz is the only top small town from the list that we’ve visited. 

The other towns that made the top 5 are:

  • 2- Watkins Glen, New York
  • 3- Bay St Louis, Mississippi
  • 4- Greenville, Kentucky
  • 5- Gulf Shores, Alabama
