best city 2018

The Best City To Visit Travel Tournament is an annual month-long contest on this site, where 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 $250 gift card to one of several online stores.

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 11th, 6pm US EST. This is 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.
