The Best of North Kitsap

• 2011

Readers are brand loyal to their favorite faces, places A record 1,200 people participated in the Herald’s “Best of North Kitsap” survey this year. Some of the results may surprise you. They’ll at least humor you.

Get to the point!

In voting for “Best Accountant” and “Best Plumber,” readers gave “Dad” enough votes to warrant an honorable mention. “Mom” received a few votes for “Best Photographer.” One of our favorites: “Under the mattress” for “Best Bank.” We had a ton of votes for “Best Contractor,” which made this category one of the toughest to tally. For “Best Wine Shop,” we received a few votes for “My House.” And the “Best Place to Make Out”? Some of you voted for “Any Dirt Road in North Kitsap.”

You deserve it!

If you’re looking for a good time, great food and a friendly place known for real fun then you deserve The Point Casino. Enjoy Slots, Blackjack, Craps or Live Poker – they’re all here at The Point. Hot August Nights

There are many different communities in North Kitsap, among them Breidablik, Eglon, Hansville, Indianola, Keyport, Kingston, Lemolo, Little Boston, Port Gamble, Poulsbo, Suquamish, and the smaller communities in between, like Edgewater, Gamblewood, and Miller Bay Estates. Two things you can count on in North Kitsap’s communities: Natural beauty and a great quality of life. You told us who and what you think contribute to that quality of life – accountant, barista, dentist, doctor, electrician, and dozens of other categories. This special section represents the best of North Kitsap, hence its name. If you live in North Kitsap, all you have to do is drive a short distance for some of the Best Places to Dine and Best Places to Shop. If you like the outdoors, look inside and learn about the Best Hiking Trails and Best Fishing Spots. North Kitsap is a wonderful place to call home and the North Kitsap Herald would like to thank all who participated in the survey this year. Though we only listed the top three in each category, we feel all the nominees are winners because they all make North Kitsap such a wonderful place to live and work. — Donna Etchey, publisher North Kitsap Herald
