Recently Rand McNally posted a blog and a website after taking nominations for "Best of the Road".   The categories were for America’s Most Beautiful, Most Fun, Friendliest, Most Patriotic, Best for Food, and (new this year!) Best for Geocaching small towns.

Helena, Montana won the prestige award for the best town to go Geocaching in.

"Geocaches on the Helena GeoTour are so rewarding that even locals swear they learn new things about their town. As one poster put it: 'People have reported that [geocaching here] is fun, hard [with] different terrains.'  What else would you expect from a Rocky Mountain town in Big Sky Country?"

Judges’ Take:
“I was convinced by the words taken directly from the geocaching community: this is an authentically engaging place to geocache. You can feel the historical connection to the gold treasure hunters from long ago while using today's satellites and smartphone apps. The gorgeous scenery just adds to the adventure!”
