Charlottesville, April 2, 2012 - Charlottesville is in the spotlight again, as it has been nominated as one
of the 2012 Best Small Towns in America, in the "Best for Food", "Most Beautiful" and "Most Fun"
categories. The public is invited to review the Charlottesville area and vote to help make it a winner on
the ‘Best of the Road' web site.
Rand McNally and USA TODAY have teamed up to create a community of road travelers reviewing the
best stops on America's highways and byways, from small towns to the points of interest in and
between them-the Best of the Road. Every year, votes are collected for the small towns the public
thinks they should visit. Amateur travelers are sent across the country exploring the Best Small Towns in
America, naming the Most Beautiful, Most Patriotic, Friendliest, Most Fun, and Best Small Town for
Food with blogs, photos, reviews and videos. Towns will be judged by our panel of travel experts and
the rally participants based on a number of criteria including the number of reviews and the nature of
the reviews posted on bestoftheroad.com, the town's social participation on Facebook and Twitter and
the reports filed by the rally participants.
Voting is so easy and can be done daily - Here is how:
