The National Trust for Historic Preservation is now accepting nominations for its list of 2009 Dozen Distinctive Destinations®. Since 2000, the National Trust for Historic Preservation has annually selected communities across the United States that offer cultural and recreational experiences different from the typical vacation destination.  From dynamic downtowns and stunning architecture to cultural diversity and commitments to historic preservation, the selected destinations boast a richness of character and exude an authentic sense of place. To date, there are 108 Distinctive Destinations located in 42 states throughout the country.

Nominations are open to Convention and Visitors Bureaus and Chambers of Commerce across the country. Individuals are encouraged to contact their local CVB or COC to encourage the submission of a nomination for this annual heritage tourism program. There is a $150 nomination fee. Those destinations selected receive a plaque for their community to display, as well as media attention and support for their destination via mainstream media and National Trust mediums. The nomination form is here: http://www.preservationnation.org/travel-and-sites/travel/dozen-distinctive-destinations/2009-dozen-distinctive.html

Completed nominations, including high-resolution jpeg images and letters of support, are due on Friday, August 29, 2008 to dozen@nthp.org.
