As reported earlier on this blog, St. Louis was recently honored to be selected as one of the nation's "Dozen Most Distinctive Destinations" for 2010 by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
For the first time ever, the Trust put the dozen destinations, which included Provincetown, Massachusetts and Bastrop, Texas, up to a popular vote to determine the Fan Favorite.
Marquette, Michigan is this year's winner, besting St. Louis by a considerable margin.
See the final results here.
Marquette will receive a free one-year partnership with Gozaic.com, a new website dedicated to heritage tourism.
