Voting Starts for Connecticut Office of Tourism's Fan-Favorite "still revolutionary" Town
The Connecticut Office of Tourism has announced that it has kicked off its fan-favorite "still revolutionary" town of the year contest.
According to a recent press release, from now through May 15, you can head over to the Visit Connecticut Facebook page to cast your vote for the state town that you believe best embodies the spirit of the tourism office's slogan "still revolutionary." You can vote once a day, and each time that you do, you are automatically entered in a contest to win a four-night getaway to the Connecticut River Valley, which looks to be a sweet deal: two nights at both the Griswold Inn and Bee and Thistle Inn, a dinner for two, free admission to Gillette Castle and Florence Griswold Museum and more.
In addition to always-important bragging rights, the winning town will be rewarded with a two-minute promotional video showcasing its "innovative, inspiring and unique places." Towns that finish in the top 10 in voting will receive widespread promotional support from the Office of Tourism. Obviously, this is a fan-based contest, so destinations are encouraged to marshal their forces to turn out the vote in their favor.
Last year, the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford won the honor as the first-ever fan favorite "still revolutionary" destination of the year. This year, it can be your town!
