Welcome to the Best of NH

Since 2000, New Hampshire Magazine has polled and published the picks of its readers and editors in categories that range from best cupcakes to best martini to best antiques shop and everything in between.

Voting in these categories takes place each year, starting in mid-January. Our online-only ballot is the best way for readers and customers to recognize the best of the best that the Granite State has to offer.

Our annual Readers’ Poll and extensive list of Editor’s Picks all lead up to the state’s biggest celebration, The Best of NH Party, which will be held at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester, NH on Thursday, June 27, 2019.

Please note that the 2019 ballot has closed. With nearly 15,000 votes, we’ll be busy calculating the results over the next few weeks. We anticipate reaching out to winners via phone and e-mail by early April.
