Los Alamos, long called the city where discoveries are made, can now add another distinction to its list.
The town was recently named one of America’s Top 10 “Best Small Towns to Visit in 2013,” by The Smithsonian Magazine. In the article, author Susan Sparo boasts the city’s historical significance, including the Manhattan Project of the 1940s, as well as its rich cultural heritage and recreational activities.
Los Alamos County’s Economic Development Division spokesperson, Kelly Stewart said the county's residents are excited about the national recognition.
“As residents, we already know about the unique, culturally significant qualities of Los Alamos, but being ranked as the eighth ‘best small town to visit’ in the entire country is quite a feat,” she said.
