If you didn’t already know, Utah just beat out Tahoe in Travelocity’s Roaming Gnome contest! We’d like to think we had a little something to do with that. Apparently the Gnome seems to think so, he just stopped by our SLC office on his tour of the State.
Destinations are pitted against each other, and fans on Facebook can vote to determine where he gets to go. Utah and Tahoe were the combatants, and the final tally on Wednesday was close. Here was his status update:
“And the winner is……….UTAH! But sweet fancy pickles, was it close. Of 285,482 votes, 142,709 (49.98%) of them went to Tahoe and 142,773 (50.01%) to Utah. Congratulations, Utah! And thanks a billion to all of you for voting. Now let me get packing!”
