Niantic Named Connecticut's Fan-Favorite Town
The results of the Connecticut Office of Tourism's Fan-Favorite Town voting are in, and the winner is:
After weeks of voting, the shoreline village of East Lyme took this year's title of fan-favorite "still revolutionary" town, with The Inn at Harbor Hill Marina B&B claiming the title of favorite destination within the town. Niantic has been the frontrunner in the voting from early on, so it's not a surprise that it was at the top of the list at the end.
In addition to always-important bragging rights, the Niantic will be rewarded with a two-minute promotional video showcasing its "innovative, inspiring and unique places." The other towns that finished in the top 10 will receive widespread promotional support from the Office of Tourism.
Like many of the towns who vied for the title, Team Niantic was very organized, got the word out and had a lot of local support, which included a music video entitled "Niantic's Got That One Thing."
Now the village has two things—including the title of fan-favorite town for 2013. Congrats!
