WMBF viewers pick Best of The Grand Strand

For the past couple of months WMBF News has had their viewers, Twitter followers, and Facebook fans vote via CityVoter.com on the Best of The Grand Strand 2011, and the results are in!

With over 1,000 nominees from a range of local businesses, WMBF's CityVoter contest saw just over 39,000 votes from 10,226 voters. All these votes and nominees culminated in 69 winners. The categories were wide, varied, and included: Arts and Entertainment, Beauty, Great Meals, Health and Fitness, Nightlife, Outdoors, Shopping and more. 

The list of winners isn't your typical "best restaurant."  No, this is a more narrowed "Best of" list, aimed at finding which local businesses does that one thing best. See the full list of winners and runners-up right here and check out the top winners from each category below.
