Best of Nevada 2014

17th Annual Readers’ Survey

Peppermill Resort Spa Casino

Peppermill Resort Spa Casino

My how time flies; the results of the 2014 Best of Nevada survey are in! Each year our readers vote for their favorite Nevada attractions—everything from state parks to golf courses, tour companies to restaurants. The best of the best have worked hard to remain on top; there are a number of familiar winners again this year. We split our state, 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.

We stayed with 16 categories again this year, but if you think we’re missing any, please let us know. Thank you to all who voted, and congratulations to each of this year’s winners. Be sure to remind your favorite businesses and attractions to visit nevadamagazine.com and look for the 2015 Best of Nevada survey in March of next year. Until then … the winners are
