Summerlin names 2021 Best of Summerlin winners

The results are in. The master-planned community, home to more than 115,000 residents, announces its 2021 Best of Summerlin winners — all the places, people and things people love about the community that spans the valley’s western rim.

Via an online vote, community residents and the public named favorites from finalists in each of 20 categories. While some names are repeats from previous years, new names and categories appear on the list as the community continues to grow.

“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, senior vice president of marketing and consumer experience for Summerlin and Downtown Summerlin, The Howard Hughes Corp. “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 located in Summerlin can be finalists. Look for the Best of Summerlin logo proudly displayed at your favorite community spot.
