Three Cheers for best of Orlando




Norma Lopez Molina

 

Winning is the name of the game in 
our annual Best of Orlando issue, and with that in mind we brought in a couple of cheerleaders to root for the first-place winners. The Best of Orlando is compiled through an online survey, with our readers casting votes in dozens of categories, from Best Bicycle Shop to Best Winter Park Restaurant to Best Local Hero and so on. So, get in the spirit of this issue and cheer for Orlando’s best.
