It’s the final round of our annual Best Towns bracket. We started with 64 of the best destinations in the country, and five rounds later we’ve narrowed the field down to two.
In one corner is Jackson, Wyoming, the winner of our mountain town competition. In the shadow of Grand Teton National Park and right next door to the world-famous Jackson Hole ski resort, Jackson has garnered more than 40,000 votes.
In the other is up-and-comer Billings, Montana, the champion of our river town competition. It’s right on the Yellowstone, boasts an extensive in-town trail network and a robust brewery scene, and has accumulated more than 47,000 votes.
