Punta Gorda is on its way to earning another honor, Best Small Town in America. Our beautiful city is currently a semi-finalist as “Most Beautiful” in an online crowd-sourced competition called “Best of the Road” hosted by Rand McNally.

If you’re socially savvy, when you post about the wonderful things to do in Punta Gorda on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Vine or whatever your social channel of choice is, use the hashtag: #bestoftheroad to build buzz.

For instance, if you’re out of a walk along the Peace River, upload a photo of the waterfront and post something like, “Another reason why Punta Gorda is #bestoftheroad” using your Instagram, Twitter, Vine, etc., accounts.

If Punta Gorda wins the competition, in addition to title of Best Small Town in America, the City will receive a feature in the 2015 Rand McNally Road Atlas and a free iPhone app and online travel guide promoting the city. This will help promote Punta Gorda as a tourist destination which in turn should help build a stronger economic for the area.

The winning towns will be announced Oct. 7.
