Local's List 2021

Welcome to Local's List 2021! 

Every year, we decide to take a back seat and turn things over to you, our readers. We recruit each of you in order to compile a list of the Coastal Bend's top local business, restaurants, people, and services. Nominate your top local picks in over 100 different categories. 

Beginning March 1st, 
readers will weigh in by nominating their favorites. Only the top 5 nominees from each category will advance to the voting round. The winners will be published in July 2021. While we unfortunately won't be hosting our annual event this year, we've got a few surprises up our sleeves to continue the celebration! 


Important Dates

  • Nomination Round: March 1st - March 22nd
  • Voting Round: April 5th - April 26th
  • Winners Announced: July 1st

**Please note, some categories will show 6 or 7 entries. This is not a mistake, as there were several ties and we honored them.
