Want to go to a distinctive destination this summer? On March 6, the National Trust for Historic Preservation announced their Dozen Distinctive Destinations for 2006.
Since 2000, 84 towns have been selected. This year's group was winnowed from 93 nominations.
In order to be nominated, a town has to meet a varied criteria. There has to be well-managed growth, an ongoing commitment to historic preservation, and a protected core area. Also, there needs to be interesting and attractive architecture, cultural diversity, walkability, family orientation, and locally owned small businesses.
