A total of 30 towns will be judged in five different categories including Most Patriotic, Most Fun, Friendliest, Best for Food, and Most Beautiful. All 30 towns will be visited and reviewed by a panel of travel experts and the Best of the Road® 2011 Rally teams between June 23rd and July 15th. The five winning towns will be announced on July 22nd in New Orleans. The winners will be featured on USA TODAY’s travel page as well as in the 2013 edition of the Rand McNally Road Atlas.
