Welcome! The Laconia Daily Sun is thrilled to bring you the fourth annual edition of Best of the Lakes Region. This magazine showcases and celebrates the businesses, people, and places the Lakes Region loves most—as voted by you.

A little behind-the-scenes – You nominated over 1,300 businesses, organizations, and individuals to compete for the top two spots in Best of the Lakes Region. In the end, there were more than 230,000 votes by you in 199 categories. That’s a fantastic response in our fourth year and a testament to how customers, fans, and friends feel about their local favorites and their pride in the Lakes Region.

The top ten categories represented 23% of the votes this year. In ranking order, they were Customer Service, Lunch Spot, Place to Work, Deli, All-Around Restaurant, Heating Service, Oil/Propane Dealer, Radio Personality, Air Conditioning Service and Convenience Store.

Naturally, this program would not have been possible without the dedicated Laconia Daily Sun staff and committed area businesses who built this chance to salute and highlight favorites. We are humbled and honored that our advertisers including our presenting sponsor Bank of New Hampshire, have helped make this printed guide possible for you to easily find the best of the best.

We could not be more proud to salute and pay tribute to the great businesses that were voted best in their individual categories. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote. We encourage you to explore the new BestoftheLakesRegion.com and engage with our winners. Some may be familiar, and some may be new to you. All will welcome your business. Be sure to congratulate them for being voted Best of the Lakes Region.
