It’s that time of year again: Greater Victoria’s original best-of-the-best contest is back, this year celebrating its 26th anniversary.

Best of the City, hosted by Black Press Media, allows residents to vote for their favourite businesses and hot-spots. This year it features 141 categories, ranging from restaurants to resorts, and from best romantic spots to best walking trails.

This year there are six new categories: best social media platform, best massage, best camping spot, best cell phone provider, best linen/bedding store and best home decor store (previously best furnishings).

Capital Region residents have the chance help their favourite businesses and locations shine by submitting nominations online.
