SKOKIE, Ill., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tune in tonight to Travel Channel at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, for a one-hour television special featuring the "Best of the Road." In closing the second annual Best of the Road ® Rally, Rand McNally and USA TODAY announced Two for the Road the winning team in Seattle. At the big reveal, the duo was awarded the title along with a $10,000 check from Rand McNally.
Team Two for the Road, Dusty and Nikki Green from Spicewood, TX, set out to find the Most Beautiful town, trekking an impressive 5,000 miles, to visit six finalist towns between Washington, D.C. and Seattle: Jim Thorpe, PA; Danville, KY; Bardstown, KY; Tybee Island, GA; Sedona, AZ and Baker City, OR. In each location, they captured beauty in all shapes, sizes, landscapes and sunsets. The winning couple was judged by their town reviews, photos and compelling videos posted during their travels and shared on ontheroad.bestoftheroad.com, Facebook and Twitter.
"We wanted to do a good service to all of the towns involved because we are small town kids and we know the value of this national exposure. We wanted each town to get a fair shake and have the material to promote themselves long after the program was over," shared Dusty and Nikki. All of their video and photography is available on the Best of the Road blog.
"We are absolutely thrilled with the work each of the teams put forth during their cross-country journeys, going above and beyond to share the heart of America through these small town visits," said Dave Muscatel, CEO of Rand McNally. "The second annual Best of the Road search has been a tremendous success thanks to the enthusiasm and support of these teams and the towns they visited."THE BEST OF THE ROAD TOWNSThe winning towns will be highlighted on www.bestoftheroad.com and in the 2014 Rand McNally Road Atlas, as well as on USA TODAY's Travel site. The Best of the Road Rally promotional sponsors include Honda, Choice Hotels and Fleetwood RV.
