The 2015 Readers' Local Favorites

Jan 05, 2016 08:00PM ● By Elena Hutslar

It’s official. The Community Focus Readers’ Local Favorites contest is now a tradition! We are excited to present the results of our 3rd annual Readers’ Local Favorites poll. During the months of September and October, 2015, a record number of loyal readers took advantage of the opportunity to vote online for their favorites in 64 categories, from the homepage of our website,, where results can also be found.

But hang on to this issue! You’ll want to refer to it again and again to find tbest places to eat, get a drink or take a hike; see where locals go for skin care, a gorgeous new hair cut and color, or a relaxing massage. Where will you buy your next set of tires? How will you start (or re-start) your road to health and fitness in 2016? How do you decide who to trust with your financial, estate or tax services? Take the advice of your friends and neighbors who voted for their favorite spots for happy hour, yoga classes and Thai food.

Congratulate these businesses! They’ve worked hard to earn the accolades. And the next time you need to eat, shop, take care of your finances, take care of your health, a loved one’s health, or just relax, look to the Readers’ Local Favorites issue to help you decide where to go or who to see! You will certainly spot some of your old favorites, and hopefully, find some gems you didn’t know existed.

The publishers would like to give a shout out to our readers for your enthusiastic response to our third “Favorites” issue, and congratulations to all the winners and finalists for being recognized for your exceptional products and services.
