The winners are in!

Flip through the Golden Teddy Awards/Family Directory Issue of ParentMap!Most of us recognize that we live in the best area on the planet. Gorgeous terrain, lush, green parks, ice-capped mountains and when we’re lucky, spectacular, sparkling, sun-drenched days. Who could ask for more?

You could, and you do, because as parents, you’re always reaching for the best options for your children. Take dance classes. Which one do you head for with your tutu-clad little pixie? Where do you go for ice cream, for toys, for overnight camps and sports programs? And, perhaps the most crucial question of all: Who makes the best pizza around these parts?

Your votes (more than 6,000 of them) for businesses and resources in five different sections tell us how much you love the vendors, doctors, classes and shops you patronize. And they tell us that you want to share these golden choices with others.
