Easy Reader Best of the Beach 2016 Retailers and Services

Beach-Mar-2016-coverOver 3,000 readers showed their support for their favorite beach retailers and services by voting in Easy Readers 30th Annual Best of The Beach contest. Though any “Best of” vote is more subjective than scientific, Best Of voting gives readers an opportunity to show their appreciation for the many businesses and services that make the beach cities such a wonderful place to live. What struck all of our reporters after they interviewed the 74 Best of the Beach winners was how hard the winners work to be the best they can be. [Editor’s note: The results of the Easy Reader Best of the Beach restaurant and entertainment voting will be published in the April 15 Easy Reader Beach magazine].
