Best of the Emerald Coast

Thank You For Voting!

For more than 20 years, the annual Best of Emerald Coast event has celebrated the best of the best as voted on by Emerald Coast Magazine readers.

We choose to live, work and play on 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, because of the people who give this little patch of Florida personality plus.

Each year’s winners reflect the people, places and things that make the Emerald Coast the amazing destination it is. We live in a community that is remarkable because of the establishments that serve our favorite meals, provide quality health care, dress us in the latest fashions, manage our finances and more.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to cast votes for the 2021 Best of the Emerald Coast. The ballot is closed and votes are being tallied. Winners will be notified over the next few months. We will announce the results in the October/November 2021 issue of Emerald Coast Magazine.

Save the Date to Join Us!
