Gobbler football, a chupacabra, art galleries, Bahnhof Cafe fried pickles, 19th century buildings and unique people did the trick to crown Cuero, Texas as one of the coolest cities in America, and the only one inTexas by Budget Travel Magazine.
Budget Travel created an online contest where twenty-one cities were highlighted and patrons could vote for the coolest. The public voting began after the magazine received 147 nominations for coolness. The magazine staff themselves also weighed in and just this month announced that Cuero was chosen as one of the ten cities throughout the United States to be honored as “cool.”
Towns with a population of under 10,000 were eligible, but cool didn’t mean quaint. Budget Travel was looking for towns with an edge; places that were beginning to draw attention- and new residents- because the quality of life and restaurant scene, or proximity to nature. They wanted cities with an edge- defined as avant-garde galleries, not country stores.
