Readers' Choice Awards

Puget Sound parents pick their favorite local spots

Readers' Choice Awards postponed until 2022

With so many of our favorite local places to play, learn, shop and dine being closed this year due to the pandemic, we decided to press pause on our annual Golden Teddy Readers’ Choice Awards until next year. We do not have new dates set at this time, but are hoping to continue our annual awards next year.

All-Time Favorites

In lieu of our annual awards, we decided it would be a good idea to take a look back over the most recent years of recorded awards outcomes to tabulate and remind you of the amazing, top-vote-getting faves you have turned to for years to help raise your family.

Your all-time family favorites

Insiders’ Guide

In addition, our extraordinary team of super-sleuthing editors and writers have rallied to deliver you an all-seasons guidebook to remarkable discoveries in every direction your compass points.

How it works

When it comes to asking the experts, we know just where to go: YOU. Parents know the very best places to play, learn, shop and dine around the Sound. That's why each year we ask you, our readers, to share your family faves.

Cast your ballots for your favorite businesses during two rounds of voting.

Round 1, dates TBD: Nominate your favorite businesses.

Round 2, dates TBD: Vote from the top five finalists in each category.

Nominate your favorite Seattle-area spots, VOTE on finalists and be entered to win awesome prizes.
