Best of Nevada 2015

18th Annual Readers’ Survey

BONevada_2015_LogoTo choose “the best” is a tough endeavor in a state as great as ours. Nevada is home to so many top restaurants, shows, attractions, golf courses, etc…we have just about run out of superlatives. That’s where you come in; each year, our readers vote for their favorite things about Nevada. We added some new categories this year, designed to highlight the family-friendly aspects of our 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.

Thank you to all who voted, and congratulations to each of this year’s winners. Be sure to remind your friends to visit
nevadamagazine.com and look for the 2016 Best of Nevada survey in March of next year.
