Seven Utah towns are in the running to be one of the Coolest Small Towns as named by Budget Travel magazine, though one should not be on it.

The towns include Brianhead, Kanab, Moab, Ogden, Panguitch, Springdale and Vernal and are part of a list of more than 200 nominees. The public votes by clicking here.

The website at www.budgettravel.com said the criteria for nominees is a town that is under 10,000 population and has "a certain something that no place else has: great shops, food, a unique history, a breathtaking location, peerless music scene, art galleries, or maybe something cool we haven't even thought of yet!"

If that is the criteria, however, Ogden would not qualify since it has a population of more than 82,000 people. Vernal also might have more than 10,000 residents by now — it had 9,089 in the 2010 U.S. census.

Budget Travel plans to whittle the list of nominees to the top 15 by the end of the year and announce 10 winners in February.
