The first round of The Best City To Visit Travel Tournament 2011 was a voting frenzy, with generally tight competition in close races like Stockholm over Cairo and Bratislava edging out Valletta. Of all the races, I’d say Bellagio eliminating Tel Aviv was probably the biggest upset, although I’m not sure many would have foreseen Lubeck putting Washington DC out of the running. There was a single tie at the end of round one, and being the tie breaker, Vilnius squeaks into the second round just ahead of Mexico City.
