Nominate your city to the NTHP Distinctive Destinations

Nominate a Distinctive Destination Today!

Celebrate places that matter by nominating unique cities and towns across America that offer cultural and recreational experiences different from the typical vacation destination. From dynamic downtowns and stunning architecture to cultural diversity and commitments to historic preservation, sustainability, and revitalization, the selected destinations boast a richness of character and exude an authentic sense of place.

Since this annual program started in 2000, a number of unique Midwest vacation destinations have been awarded spots on the list.  St. Louis, MO and Cedar Falls, IA both made the 2010 list, and Marquette, MI was awarded the 2010 Dozen Distinctive Destination Fan Favorite!

Applications for the 2011 Dozen Distinctive Destinations are now available at Spread the word and encourage our sites, partners and friends to nominate a Distinctive Destination. From a feature in Preservation magazine to extensive media coverage to prominent placement on our website and much more, the winning destinations receive tangible benefits from this positive program that highlights the work of their community and promotes heritage tourism. Applications are due by September 10th and all the information you’ll need can be found on our website.
