It’s a Party, and You’re Invited: Best of Plymouth 2024

by | Jun 2024

Best of Plymouth 2024
Three cheers to the winners of our Best of Plymouth 2024 Readers’ Choice Poll!

A lot goes into a garden party. There are the caterers and the makers of sweet treats; the garden centers and lawn care experts who create a beautiful backdrop; the builders and interior designers who make entertaining a delight; the boutiques and stylists who have guests looking their best; the wellness and self-care providers who relieve some of the stress of hosting; pet groomers who make sure your four-legged family members put their best paw forward or pet boarders who house high-spirited pups.

If I were to imagine our community contest as a garden party, each and every restaurant, service provider and shop has contributed to the festivities. But what’s a party without guests? Plymouth Magazine readers turned out en masse to celebrate their community by voting in our annual Readers’ Choice Poll. It certainly wouldn’t be a party without you!—Madeline Kopiecki
