Nevada City is one of 10 finalists for Outside Magazine’s “Best Town in America” contest and the chance to be on the cover of its October edition.

For its 35th Anniversary issue, Outside is asking the public to help select the winner in its Best Town Ever Facebook app.

The winning town will receive the official honor of Outside’s “Best Town in America” and be featured in the October 2012 magazine cover and on Outside online.
