The five teams have been selected for the Best of the Road contest sponsored by USA Today and Rand McNally. On June 23rd, the teams will take off from New York and head out to explore six towns each. They'll be armed with suggestions for dining, recreation, and notable attractions.
The towns that will visit were selected by popular vote in five different categories: most beautiful, most patriotic, friendliest, most fun and best for food. Each team will visit towns in a themed category, but they won't know which one until they're about to depart.
