The Gainesville Sun put on a Reader’s Choice Best of the Best competition which gave folks locally an opportunity to vote for their favorite businesses in over 125 different categories — from best After School to their favorite restaurant.
This year, online voting participation grew to over 136,000 votes – more votes than Ben Hill Griffin Stadium holds people.
“We’re thrilled that the city has really taken to the competition,” said Liz Borten. “We have more winners than ever, as voted by more people than ever. We’re excited to highlight the community’s favorite businesses and share them with locals and visitors alike.”
The awards help us take a look at what makes Gainesville one of the greatest cities in Florida. Gainesville being home to the state’s flagship University doesn’t stop it from keeping the small-town charm that turns visitors into residents. Magazines have named Gainesville the top city in America to live in and Livability lists Gainesville, Florida in the top 100 best places to move to. Recent business growth throughout Gainesville is bringing more and more people to Gainesville, as well as keeping the University’s students staying here after graduating, too.
With so many great things to do and places to visit in Gainesville, it can be hard to decide where to go for a fun outing. That’s why this best of the best guide is your go-to reference when you want to experience the best the community has to offer — voted for you, by those who know the city best, your neighbors.
Even more than just a reference for where to eat or visit, it lists Home Services such as Tree Service, Lawn and Landscape Service, and Pest Control Services that are voted as the best in Gainesville. A Child’s Academy is proud to announce we were awarded the Best of the Best in Gainesville for Best Preschool in Gainesville for the 2nd year in a row!! We appreciate our team exceeding our family’s expectations, our clients and neighbors voting for us to receive the award, the hard work our staff and teachers put in every single day and the Gainesville Sun for putting on the Awards Banquet on Thursday evening.
