Our 23rd annual readers’ survey results are here! This survey has changed as the years have gone by, but one thing stays the same: people are passionate about their choices. This year’s results look a little different than past years, yet there are many constants. Our readers have grown and changed, so the Best of 2020 reflects those differences, but fear not as many old favorites are still well represented.

Once again, we have some terrific prize packages to thank eight lucky winners for taking the time to vote. Our sponsors this year are all from southern Nevada, and to them, we say a hearty thank you. We’re so happy to share your amazing businesses with our readers.

To all our winners, congratulations!

Renee Guglielmetti, Sam, John Bentham, Richard Reyes, Zhaklin Lappas, Janet Slough, David Corgan, and Ash Rebosa

Thank you to our sponsors!
