YOU TELL US
It was our editors who pulled together 2008's list of Coolest Small Towns
, but for next year's list, they're asking for your help in coming up with candidates. Do you live in a friendly, vibrant town that's on the rise but has fewer than 10,000 residents? Or have you visited one? Nominate your favorite candidates here.

Our article on America's Best Restaurants
had rooms for lots of great places, but it also overlooked many more local treasures. We're looking to round out our coverage with more of the best places to eat like a local from coast to coast. We've already heard from many of you in our article comments and on our blog, but we still want more tips. Add an article comment now to nominate restaurants—the sort of places that locals love, and visitors wish they knew about.comment now
Many of our articles now allow you to comment on them right on the page. Let us know how we managed on these issues.
- The Traveler's Medicine Cabinet An infectious-disease specialist gave us a list of 11 products everyone should take with them on travels, and our readers had lots more items they would never leave home without. What are yours?
- America's Best Restaurants We compiled our list from over 400 reader tips, but that doesn't mean we got everyone's favorites. What homey places deserve a spot on our list?
- Confessions Of… A Flight Attendant Our inside source told passengers never to ring the help button, and that prompted some furious letters to the editor. What do you think?
- Confessions Of… A Front-Desk Clerk Our hotel mole told us just why working in a hotel is "like an addictive soap opera," complete with guests who "test pickup lines on whoever is behind the front desk." What's your take on the job? Would you ever consider doing it yourself?
