The Best of Orlando

From jewelers to gyms, bars spaces to car places, people of top caliber to restaurants of definable character, our annual Best of Orlando list reveals the top picks in 89 categories as decided by our readers. We awarded the “Best of’’ designation based on total votes for a candidate—none of that Electoral College nonsense. And to prove that we respect the voters’ wishes, we didn’t disqualify their choice as the “Person who most exemplifies Orlando.” We can take a joke.
