The Local's List - The Bend Magazine

Welcome to The Local’s List 2023!

*Please scroll to the bottom of the page to view the ballot*

Every year, our team takes a back seat and turns things over to you, our readers. We recruit each of you in order to compile a list–The Local’s List–of the top local businesses, restaurants, people and services located in the Coastal Bend.

Beginning February 27, 2023, readers will weigh in by nominating their favorites in over 100 different categories. Only the top 5 nominees from each category will advance to the voting round, which begins on April 3, 2023. The winners will be published in July 2023.

Please note, the Coastal Bend radius for The Local’s List includes the following counties: Aransas, Bee, Jim Wells, Kleberg, Nueces, Refugio, and San Patricio
