Best Of The Emerald Coast 2019

The ballots have been counted, the results are in.
Illustration by Lindsey Masterson

We choose to live, work and play in the Emerald Coast because it has a distinct sense of place that gives us a true sense of belonging.

Locals will tell you that the quality of life here is unlike any other, not because of the sugar-sand beaches, though they are spectacular.

Not because of the climate, though the Southern tropical climate is desirable all year. It is surely because of the people who give this little patch of Florida personality plus.

They are our earnest, hardworking friends, family and neighbors who pour their heart and souls into all they do — including delicious restaurants, quaint retail shops and service-centric businesses they own and operate, and the exceptional professional services they dutifully provide to each of us day in and day out.

We left the honor to our loyal readers, to judge the Best for yourselves.

Your votes were cast in the first-ever fully digital poll.

The ballots have been counted, the results are in and now it’s time to celebrate! – Zandra Wolfgram, Editor, Emerald Coast Magazine
