Duluth is now one round away from being named America's Best Outside City by Outside Magazine.

The contest is down from 64 cities to just two. Duluth is going head-to-head with Provo, Utah.

Mayor Don Ness said winning the Best Outside City title will draw in entrepreneurs and families that are looking for a lifestyle outdoors.

"When you can excel in an area, like Duluth excels in outdoor recreation and natural beauty, that becomes your calling card. For the people who are most passionate about that lifestyle, they will then learn about Duluth and make Duluth their first choice," he said.

The mayor also said winning the title would likely include a cover story with Outside Magazine.
