For 19 years, we at Connecticut Magazine have been compiling all the things we love and want to share about the state. And we simply never get tired of bringing you the best of what makes Connecticut such a special place, from burgers to beaches, pizza to performing arts and water parks to women’s wear.
This year we have new categories and lots of new winners. Several categories, in which the competition was particularly stiff, have multiple winners and runners-up.
As always, we invite you to share your thoughts and tell us about places we may have missed. Like you, we’re interested in exploring where we live and finding the best it has to offer. Enjoy!
