“Good Morning America” is looking for nominations through Twitter on why they should come to the community. To do so, residents have to post a picture with #GMAonTheRoad and tag visitAustinMN.

When asked why Austin should be featured, Schnable had a simple answer: “Why not?”

“There are a lot of wonderful attractions here,” she said. “We bring in a lot of visitors throughout the year and this is a great way to showcase all of the things we have here.”

“We have a little something for everyone,” she added.
