Is Snohomish the Coolest Small Town in America?

Snohomish, WA is one of a select few that qualified for the final round of “America’s Coolest Small Towns Contest- 2015”. In the fall of 2014, the magazine conducted a nominating round of voting. That first round eliminated hundreds of entries, and boosted 15 cool towns to the top- including Snohomish. When voting closes at 11:59 p.m. on March 4, only one town will be named “the coolest” for 2015, earning a year’s worth of bragging rights and the top spot in a feature and story in Budget Travel magazine and website. So if you love Snohomish as much as we do, keep on voting!
