best city 2017

The Best City To Visit Travel Tournament is an annual month-long contest here on this site, where 64 cities nominated by readers are cut in half by your votes every week in March. Until there is only one left. The person who chose the winning city will get a $600 gift card to one of several online stores, plus this year, for the first time, there will be prizes for second place and getting to the Final Four. Not to mention, I’m planning some big events around the winning city – if you all tell me it’s the best – I’ll make sure everyone else knows too.

How It Works

All you have to do is vote by clicking your preferred city in each of the match ups below before this Sunday, March 5th, 3pm US EST. This is by far the shortest round of the entire tournament, but if you follow the steps of previous winners, early votes here can easily advance your city to the next round. Votes won’t be shown until some time after the polls close. I’m the tie-breaker throughout the contest should any cities be tied at the end of a contest round. The next Round of 32 begins Tuesday, March 7th, when you can see if your favorite cities advanced or were eliminated.

Additional Prizes

As I mentioned above, this year for the first time I’m giving away prizes for second place in the Championship and making it to the Final Four. The person who nominated the second place winner will receive a $50 gift card and those in the Final Four who don’t advance to the Championship will each get a $25 gift card. The cards can be used at a number of online stores, including Apple, Amazon, and others. (More details here.) Good luck everyone!
