All the Best: Locals' Guide to Vermont 2014

More than 10,000 Vermonters weighed in on the state’s 2014 “best of Vermont” awards, with a whopping 650,000-plus individual votes in 177 categories. In this, our 12th year of hosting what we call “the Daysies,” Seven Days doubled the pleasure: In the first round, Vermonters nominated their favorites in categories from best burger to best tattoo artist, best creemee to best car dealer. We tallied the write-in nominations, winnowed the field to 5-6 top finalists in each category and offered those up for a final public vote. The result is a locals' guide to "all the best" things to do, see, eat and buy in Vermont — enjoy!

A note about the “Outside Chittenden County” section. In Vermont, the largest population is inside Chittenden County, so it’s tough for anyone outside to top the Burlington area. But in some instances — say, bookstore or pizza — the passionate swell of votes from outside Chittenden County justified separating the category.

Great job, and any nitpicking is merely personal preference. For example, I believe Luis Guzman should have cracked the top 5 for male actors. I think that Best Mexican should be renamed Best Mexican/Tex-Mex. I have 86 more days until I can partake of the wonderful tapestry of the broad variety of Mexican cuisines. How about a Best Dinner for 2, under $40, tax&tip included?
