Birmingham Named in Outside Magazine Best Towns 2015
OUTSIDE Magazine, America’s foremost active and adventure lifestyle brand, and outdoor lifestyle apparel company Toad&Co have named Birmingham as a top 60 finalist in their 2015 “Best Town Ever” contest.
Local specialty outdoor retailer Alabama Outdoors has been chosen as the retailer of choice and local promoter of the Best Towns 2015 bracket. Over a period of six weeks, OUTSIDE’s readers will narrow an initial bracket of 64 towns down to one winner: the kind of place with top-notch restaurants, vibrant farmers’ markets, friendly neighborhoods, and unparalleled access to hiking and biking trails.
Beginning this week, OUTSIDE and Toad&Co will engage and incentivize consumers to visit Outside Online and vote early and often in the competition through a sweepstakes drawing. Seven drawings will occur, one after the end of each round of voting, with winners receiving Toad&Co apparel packages. Winners of the Grand Prize will receive an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the Best Town Ever fully outfitted in Toad&Co. The Best Town will be revealed on August 1st. OUTSIDE will feature the final 16 towns in its September 2015 issue.
Voting begins MAY 4 on Outside Online. Share your own #Birmingham photos with the official #votebhamoutdoors tag, and let’s show the nation what we already know and love about Birmingham!
Alabama Outdoors will spotlight Birmingham’s great outdoor culture and selection as a “Best Town” finalist on Friday, May 1st during the company’s popular Party on the Porch. Come out to celebrate Birmingham and this exciting opportunity, and remember to vote!
