Dozen Distinctive Destinations

What does Saranac Lake, NY have in common with these places? Prescott, AZ; Monterey, CA; Palm Springs, CA; Lewes, DE; Waimea, HI; Bowling Green, KY; Arrow Rock, MO; Philipsburg, MT; Bartlesville, OK; West Chester, PA; Milwaukee, WI.

They are all included on the National Trust for Historic Preservation 'Dozen Distinctive Destinations'!

From a charming Adirondack town made famous a century ago for its healing powers, to the desert hideaway that holds countless treasures of modern architectural design, and the Midwest city known for its world-class museums and brewery heritage, America offers alternative vacation destinations that symbolize an increasing dedication to historic preservation. In recognition of this travel trend, The National Trust for Historic Preservation, the country's largest private, nonprofit preservation organization, today announced the selection of its 2006 Dozen Distinctive Destinations, an annual list of unique and lovingly preserved communities in the United States.

I wonder how much longer Saranac Lake will be able to remain 'distinctive'?
