Less than week left to vote for Grand Marais in Budget Travel Magazine’s contest

COOK COUNTY, Minn. – With less than a week to go in Budget Travel Magazine’s contest to crown the coolest small town in America, Grand Marais currently has only a 2-percentage-point lead in the national contest. Its biggest competitor is Chincoteague, Virginia.  Voting closes at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 25.

“Grand Marais supporters can vote once a day,” says Linda Kratt, executive director of Visit Cook County.  “The technology Budget Travel uses allows only one vote per Internet server, so Visit Cook County staff members and other supporters are voting from our cell phones.”

“The easiest way to vote is to go to Visit Cook County.  We have a link there to Budget Travel’s voting page. After you place your vote, you can immediately check the results to see how we are doing. If we win, the publicity we receive will mean more visitors to our area and more business for our local restaurants, shops and lodging owners. ”
