Boulder Weekly has been serving Boulder County residents as the region’s independent voice for news, culture, food and entertainment for two decades.


During that time, we have watched and reported on the growth of East County and have witnessed with enthusiasm the addition of the many new restaurants, retail stores, entertainment venues and service companies of all types that have chosen to open or relocate to the area.

So you could say that this special edition has been in the making for more than 20 years, but that’s all right because good things come to those who wait.

In order to better serve you, our readers, and celebrate all that is great and unique about that part of our county where we wake up every morning greeted by the spectacular back-range views that can be had from Louisville to Lafayette to Longmont, we decided it was time to give East County its very own “Best of” edition.

We know that East County residents have always been justifiably proud of their communities. We know this because many of us who work at Boulder Weekly have chosen, like a couple of hundred thousand other folks, to live and raise our families in the “L” towns because of the amazing quality of life they offer. We also saw that pride exhibited in the enthusiastic response when we asked you to vote for your favorite things in East County.

So here are the results of your efforts. We hope you enjoy this year’s annual Best of Boulder East County. The winners were chosen by our readers. And we have to say, from the looks of it, our readers have great taste. Congratulations to all of the winners. It says a lot about your businesses that your customers took their time to vote for you.
