DULUTH, Minn. - Outdoor Magazine is on the lookout for the Best Town in America for outdoor lifestyles and both Duluth and Minneapolis are hoping to take the title.

The bracket-style contest started last week, with both Duluth and Minneapolis making it to the second round in the online voting contest.

"Outside Magazine has voted us into the top 10 before, but it's always been by their choice," said Jerry Thoreson, of Destination Duluth.

Outdoor Magazine is encouraging voters to vote and then share a picture of themselves enjoying the outdoors in their town on Facebook.

"If we can reach the No. 1 position, because we are you know, then we can tell the world that Duluth has been voted the No. 1 city, No. 1 outside city in America," Thoreson proclaimed.

Second round voting ends on Saturday at 11:59 p.m. To take part, go to www.outsideonline.com.
