After a four-week-long competition which was held on Facebook, Outside Magazine has announced Richmond, VA as the winner of the title “best river town in America.”

This means that since Richmond was named the “Best Town Ever,” it was placed on the cover of Outside’s October 35th anniversary issue

Richmond received 9,315 votes and won over the other nine competitors, including: Hood River, Oregon; Nevada City, California; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Asheville, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; Boise, Idaho; Missoula, Montana; Durango, Colorado; and Ithaca, New York.
