Our city creamed our neighbors down I-35 in round four and is now going head-to-head with Asheville, N.C.

As of Wednesday night, we held a lead of roughly 10,000 votes.

"This campaign is about educating the world about what Duluth has to offer," Jerry Thoreson, an organizer with the website voteduluth.com. "So we're endeavored to educate people about the outdoors of Duluth."

The two other towns in the final four are Provo, Utah and Ithaca, N.Y.

Round 5 will come to a close on Sunday, so be sure to get your vote in by then.
