2019 Best of Summerlin winners announced

The results are in! The master-planned community, home to more than 100,000 residents, announces its 2019 Best of Summerlin winners — all of the places, people and things people love about living in Summerlin.

Via an online vote, community residents and the public named favorites from five finalists in each of 16 categories after a three-week voting period. While some names are repeats from previous years, new names appear on the list as the community and Downtown Summerlin continue to grow, with the urban center adding new and exciting brands to its lineup.

“This competition allows us to showcase and celebrate the venues, facilities, restaurants and other popular places and amenities that make Summerlin such a great place to live,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, vice president of marketing for Summerlin. “The Best of Summerlin competition is especially meaningful because it’s the voting public who decides the winners. And winners are proud to showcase their Best of Summerlin designation all yearlong.”

While Southern Nevada residents can nominate any local businesses of choice, only businesses in Summerlin can be finalists. Look for the Best of Summerlin logo displayed at your favorite community spot.
