The votes are tallied and the results are in.
See what Lake Superior Magazine readers chose as their favorites in this year’s 12 categories.
The Bayfield Apple Festival was voted Best Festival on the Wisconsin shore by readers in this year's survey.
SOMETIMES a simple survey brings up the funniest responses. When we asked our magazine readers and website viewers to name their best rock/agate picking places, perhaps the most consistent answer was: You’re kidding, right?
True, we might just as well have asked for your favorite fishing hole, yet many did come through with generous options for those who haven’t yet chosen a favorite place to look for agates or comb the beach.
There were quite a few repeats to this list and also a few delightful surprises in the top picks, reminders of how many great places there are to try even for Lake veterans like the staff here.
The top vote-getters are indicated with a “◆” and you’ll notice that in the cases where the voting was too close to call, we’ve gone with multiple winners.
Thank you to all of our magazine readers and online friends who voted and helped to choose this year’s Best of the Lake. As you travel around the Lake, you’ll see our Best of the Lake logo in windows of establishments that have earned the designation this year or in the past. We encourage you to check them out and to see if you agree that they provide the best products and service. Please do congratulate them on their win and support them on keeping up the good work. Maybe they’ll earn your vote in our next Best of the Lake choices.
