Vote for America’s Best Place to Live

64 towns. 1 winner. You decide.

Outside’s Best Towns contest is back for the fourth year in a row, with one key difference. This time, the towns are going head-to-head, and we're trusting our favorite experts—our readers—to pick the best place to live in America. We put together a bracket of our 64 favorite towns in the country, from mountain escapes to beachside getaways and powder hot spots.

Now it's your job to crown a winner.

Doing that is simple: Go to the Vote Now section below to vote for your favorite towns. The first five rounds of voting will last five days. You may vote once per round for each matchup. The winners will advance until only two towns remain. Then we'll have a seven-day showdown to determine Outside's Best Town 2014. The winner will be the town with the most votes on June 15.
