The Eastern Shore is a pretty cool place to live. We live in a place where thousands of people spend their summer vacations each year. Hidden in our coastal towns are restaurants that serve the most delicious meals, great live entertainment, amazing amusements, and people we couldn’t live without. We want to know who you think is the best! Take part in ShoreBread’s Best of the Coast 2013! We’re showcasing the best of Ocean City, Ocean Pines, Berlin, Fenwick, Dewey, Bethany, Rehoboth, Lewes, and surrounding areas. Cast your vote today!
Several months’ worth of random polling resulted in lists of the top six businesses, organizations, personalities, or places in more than 50 different categories. Throughout 2013, each month will be devoted to one category: 11 categories total plus one month of recapping the best. In December, 2013, ShoreBread will announce the winners!

Check out the categories for voting below:

January – Heath & Wellness Month
Vote for your favorite salon, spa, gym, health food store, or holistic care business.

November – Philanthropic Awards
Who helps? Vote for the best nonprofit, cause, individual, or business that makes a positive contribution to our local communities.
When voting over the next few months, there will also be a way to enter a write-in business, organization, or individual who isn’t already on our Best of list. Why? We want to know if there is someone we’ve missed. You can write your opinion in the ‘Other’ box if you so desire. But, there are a few guidelines. That write-in must have a website and must be a validated business or organization. We don’t want to receive any off-the-wall entries.
Come December, we’ll reopen all of the polls for a few weeks of last-minute voting. Before New Year’s, we’ll announce all of the winners!
The goal of ShoreBread’s Best of the Coast campaign is to award those businesses, organizations, and individuals who always go above and beyond what is expected of them. We want to award those who really do stand out and do a more than terrific job at what they do. We’re looking for the best of the best.
Get ready, get set, and get your vote on! Your coast is calling your name. Vote during ShoreBread’s Best of the Coast 2013!
