Three South Dakota towns are in the running on a travel website to be named among the "coolest" small towns in America.
Deadwood, Hot Springs and Wall have all been nominated on BudgetTravel.com. The website's Coolest Small Towns 2014 contest is taking votes on the towns with a population under 10,000.
BudgetTravel.com is taking nominations through the end of the year, then it will narrow the list to 15 finalists.
It will use votes for the nominees on its website to determine the finalists, but also look for diversity in geography, attractions, architecture, and other factors.
15 finalists will be posted in January to be voted on, with ten winners announced in February.
