Lilac City One of Ten Finalists for Outside Magazine's "Best Town to be Active and Healthy"

— Voting starts today to help name Spokane the "Best Town in the U.S." Outside Magazine has just launched its annual contest, and voting will close just three weeks later.

This year's competition is to find the best town for "easy living." More specifically, it's about finding the town that makes it easy to be active, to eat well and to stay healthy, according to Outside Magazine.

To narrow its list down to 10 towns, Outside Magazine editors talked to runners, paddlers, hikers, etc.

Now, it's up to those who love Spokane to make it happen. Anyone can vote, once a day, on Outside Magazine's Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/outsidemagazine, or on the magazine's web site, www.outsideonline.com. When voters access the Outside Magazine "Best Towns App," they can simply click on the town of their choice. They can also provide more input, by voting for more specific categories for their town. By clicking on more categories, that might improve Spokane's chances of winning.

"We're not choosing the winner based on the number of votes, but more by the passion shown by voters for their town," said Jonah Ogles, associate editor at Outside Magazine. Ogles pointed out that Spokane, while being larger than some of the other finalist towns, is smaller than some, including Boston and San Diego. "We just want to find out why people love Spokane and what makes it a great, healthy city."

The winning city and the other nine finalists will be featured in the September 2013 issue of Outside Magazine, which will be available in mid-August.
