"Travel + Leisure" magazine recently announced Lewisburg was among the winners in its inaugural survey to determine America's Favorite Towns, according to the Greenbrier County Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The survey asked fans of the magazine to nominate their favorite towns using social media and Lewisburg was one of 744 towns across 55 categories that were nominated. A total of 20 towns were selected as winners.

"Being named one of America's favorite towns in Travel + Leisure is a testament to the variety of wonderful activities going on in Lewisburg — our special events, our arts, our shops, our restaurants — and the hard work of so many people to make this such an attractive, vibrant and welcoming town," said Lewisburg Mayor John Manchester. 

Lewisburg was the only West Virginia town among the winners, sharing the distinction with Aspen, Colo., Beaufort, N.C. and Amelia Island, Fla.

"We are honored to be named among so many other fine towns across the country," Manchester said.

In 2011, "Budget Travel" magazine selected Lewisburg as "America's Coolest Small Town."
