Burlington, Vt. and Portland, Maine are among the 10 finalists in Outside Magazine's search for the "Best Town Ever," but both have a lot of work to do if a New England entry is to win the honor.

Both towns currently trail by hundreds of votes with voting closing on June 26. As of today, Burlington had only 274 votes while Portland had only 180. Tucson Ariz. leads the way with 1,861 votes.

By voting on Outside's Facebook page, fans of each town will be entered to win a five-day trip to the one of the 10 finalists. The winning town will be featured on the cover of the magazine's October issue and will have a dedicated segment about it on Outside Television.
