About the Author
David Vokac has been dubbed the Guru of Great Towns. Since 1985 he has crisscrossed America searching for ideal towns combining scenic grandeur, exhilarating outdoor recreation options, and strong regional culture. He believes that in small town America, the true diversity of this nation is captured best. In idyllic getaways, visitors opt for outdoor activities like swimming, boating, hiking, or fishing, and enjoyment of manmade attractions like museums, parks, monuments, and specialty shops.
David was inspired to focus his books on Great Towns by his youth in Cody, Wyoming where he rode horses, ran rivers, and fished in Yellowstone Lake while enjoying a first-rate education in a top-notch school system in the town founded by Buffalo Bill. His subsequent education including a Master of Arts in geography and area development led to professional work in community and park development which honed his interests and skills at finding desirable locales. Following two complete editions of the landmark guidebook about the 100 Great Towns of America, David continues to return to these favored venues and seek more of them to keep travelers updated on getaways and boondock features in this great country of ours, the United States of America.
Joan Vokac, after serving 35 years as a land use planner for the unincorporated villages of San Diego County, now joins husband David in seeking the most exciting getaway towns in the nation. She delights in discovering new towns combining physical grandeur with distinctive local culture. Whether spending a day gliding down a waterslide or hiking a trail, she enjoys returning to a gourmet meal and friendly lodging in one of America's Great Towns. In addition to being an avid researcher and co-author of the most recent Great Towns guidebooks, she is webmaster of greattowns.com and has become an occasional trainer due to her expertise gained from converting the Great Towns information into contemporary media.
