For over 156 years, Rand McNally has been showing the world what's best on the highways and byways of America. For the last 10 years, Rand McNally has been celebrating locations that are lesser-known or off the beaten path, are unique or have special character and capture the region's essence. These destinations have been featured as part of Best of the Road in their travel guides and in their Road Atlas.
In 2011, Rand McNally and USA TODAY teamed up to take this program to the web, allowing consumers to voice their opinion on what points of interest or small towns they think should be featured as the "Best of the Road" in the United States. The 2011 program seeks out the Best Small Towns in America in each of the following categories: Most Fun Town; Most Patriotic Town; Best Town for Scenery (Most Beautiful); Best Town for Food; and Friendliest Town.
The top towns will be recognized on www.bestoftheroad.com, written about by USA TODAY and featured in the 2013 Rand McNally Road Atlas.
