Travel content company Rand McNally is searching for the Best Small Towns in America.
This year, Rand McNally teams up with two new partners, Good Sam Club and Geocaching.com.
With these new partnerships, the Best of the Road program kicked off Monday to ensure an increase in travelers interested in visiting America’s best small towns.
Winning towns in six categories will receive a free custom iPhone App and online travel guide developed by Rand McNally, coverage in the 2015 Road Atlas, media impressions, and so on.
“The addition of two new partners this year brings a great combination of inspiration and trip-planning, and a new way to experience a small town – all via technology,” says Dave Muscatel, CEO of Rand McNally.
