Voting on Round 1 has ended, and the finalists have been selected. Round 2 is now open and will be accepting votes through May 29. 


We’re taking “Best of Connecticut”® to the next level! We’re rolling out a new process this year to come up with a bigger and better list of the greatest the state has to offer in Food & Drink, Fun & Leisure, and Shopping. And we want to hear from you!        

ROUND 1: March 23 to April 24 — Nominate your favorite things about Connecticut in a wide variety of categories. You can vote once a day with a valid email address.

ROUND 2: May 1 to May 29 — The top vote-getters from Round 1 — along with select editors’ picks — will be finalists on this multiple-choice ballot. In this round, you can vote only once. So make sure to choose wisely!

In each round, email addresses are required for verification purposes. We will police entries to prevent ballot stuffing or other fraudulent activity.
