Congratulations to the best!

Welcome to The Union’s 6th annual Best of Nevada County edition. This publication recognizes the recipients selected through our readers’ poll. We printed our Best of Nevada County ballot in The Union for several days in January and asked you – our readers – to tell us your favorites. And you did, in record numbers! Our readers responded overwhelmingly, telling us where to find the best pizza, the best furniture store, the best florist, and the best place to propose, on a horse drawn carriage – of course!

Because this is a readers’ poll, it’s not scientific. But a scientific poll wasn’t what we were looking for. We think our readers give the best advice of all. It’s reminiscent of the “talking over the back yard fence” kind of community that represents all that is wonderful about Nevada County. The ballots were counted off site and tallied by a non-partisan entity to ensure their integrity.

Every year The Union strives to include new categories to enhance the depth of the publication. The Best of Nevada County edition is one everyone will want to keep around the house and use during the year. You never know when you’ll want to find the best hiking trail, the best place for patio dining, or the best new and/or used book store in the county. All participants of this edition are truly the best of Best of Nevada County.

Area residents and tourists will now know who the best of 2004 are in their selected categories. Businesses will have the honor of promoting themselves during the next 12 months as a winner of this year’s readers’ choice awards. Many businesses and services have been honored during the past six years as the best. They proudly adorn their business walls with the recognizable plaque as proof of their accomplishment. Several businesses are multiple year winners. The winners of this years’ edition have now joined this special club.

A special thank you goes out to the readers and advertisers of The Union for contributing to the success of this year’s Best of Nevada County edition. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed bringing to you.
