We're Number 101, We're Number 101

According to this article in Friday's Southern Illinioisan, 101 Best Outdoor Towns by Sarah Tuff and Greg Meville ranks Carbondale as one of the best outdoor towns in America, up there with Lake Placid, NY and Taos, NM. C'dale is the only Illinois town mentioned in the book and go the nob because of our ready proximity to the Shawnee National Forest. While the article paints Mayor Cole as pretty enthused about the three pages devoted to the 'dale, Carbondale Convention and Tourism Bureau director Debbie Moore seems less so saying:

"I think there are travel writers that probably pay attention to those kinds of books," she said. "The spin-off from that is a positive thing."
