BERLIN WINS BEST SHOPPING DESTINATION AWARD
USA Today Sponsors National Vote for Best Small Town Shopping
(May 18, 2018) — Berlin, Maryland – The Town of Berlin, a community of about 4,500 residents near the Atlantic coast on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, has been awarded the national distinction for America’s Best Small Town for Shopping in 2018 by USA Today.
USA Today nominated 20 small towns throughout the United States and left it up to the voters nationwide to choose the top 10. Berlin was voted number one in results announced this week.
This designation will be added to the growing list of awards the Town of Berlin has won in the past four years including ‘America’s Coolest Small Town’ by Budget Travel Magazine, ‘Best Town to Visit’ by Smithsonian Magazine, ‘Top 20 Most Beautiful Towns’ by Architectural Digest and more.
“What a special honor this year as our town celebrates our 150th Anniversary. It’s a complement to our basic principle of encouraging residents and guests alike to enjoy our 19th century charm while experiencing 21st century living, all with a touch of class and a healthy dose of whimsy,” said Berlin Mayor Gee Williams.
“We have the best merchants in the country. Thank you to everyone who voted for us,” Director of Economic and Community Development, Ivy Wells.
