Here’s a fun list of the ten (10) best and ten (10) worst city or town slogans from across the United States. If you think there are better or worse ones, please send them along and we will judge them against these current leaders.

Ten Best

  1. Texarkana, TX/AR – “Twice as Nice”  – Short, memorable, and to the point considering it’s a twin city split by a state line
  2. Metter, GA – “Everything’s Better in Metter” – Very catchy
  3. Knox, IN – “Where opportunity knocks” – Punny and perfect for economic development
  4. Dubuque, IA – “Masterpiece on the Mississippi” – Also memorable
  5. Loveland, OH – “Sweetheart of Ohio”  – Good play on Ohio being the heart of it all
  6. Hershey, PA – “The Sweetest Place on Earth” – Self-explanatory, tho may be getting a tad dated
  7. Talent, OR – “Our Name Speaks For Itself” – Logical and cute
  8. Gas, KS  – “Don’t pass Gas, stop and enjoy it” – Very cute and funny
  9. Ault, CO – “A Unique Little Town” – Innovative
  10. Glendive, MT – “Good People Surrounded by Badlands” – Nice contrast
