Best of Nevada 2016

19th Annual Reader’s Survey

Kids-Place-Burnt-Cedar

Voting for the “best” of anything isn’t easy, but when you have a state like Nevada, it becomes downright daunting. There are so many wonderful places to eat, shows to see, events to attend, tours to take, places to golf, etc., it’s hard to play favorites.

Thank goodness so many of our readers were equal to the challenge. They’ve helped narrow the playing field as it were, and given us a look into their personal favorites all across the state.

Because we’re such a large state, we’ve split Nevada—for contest purposes only—into three areas; North, South, and Everywhere Else, which includes our rural regions and our not-so-rural, but not-quite-urban cities.

Thanks as ever to our incredible readers who voted; this contest is nothing without you. And to the winners we say congratulations! Your hard work has paid off. Be sure to visit nevadamagazine.com and look for the 2017 Best of Nevada survey in March of next year.
