Is Shepherdstown America's Best Place to Live?


Shepherdstown is among the 64 towns vying for the title of Best Place to Live in America in Outside Magazine. 

The competition is broken down into four geographic regions of the US; West, East, Midwest, and South. Shepherdstown is one of 16 towns from the south.

In this first round of voting it’s up against Little Rock Arkansas. An Outside Living news release says there will be six rounds of voting on the magazine’s web site with each round lasting five days. When only two towns are left, there will be a seven day showdown to determine the winner, which will be featured in the September issue of the magazine.

This is the fourth year Outside Magazine has sponsored the contest, which attempts to find the town that is the best ‘jumping off point’ for adventure.
