2022 Best of Summerlin winners announced

The results are in! The Summerlin master-planned community, home to 120,000 residents, announces its 2022 Best of Summerlin winners — all the places, people and things people love about the community that spans the valley’s western rim. Via an online vote, community residents and the general public named favorites from finalists in 20 categories. While some names are repeats from previous years, new names and categories appear on this year’s list as the community continues to grow.

“Best of Summerlin showcases and celebrates the venues, facilities, restaurants and other popular places and amenities that make Summerlin such a great place to live,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, senior vice president of marketing and consumer experience for Summerlin and Downtown Summerlin, The Howard Hughes Corp. “The Best of Summerlin designation is especially meaningful because it’s the voting public who decides the winners.”

While Southern Nevada residents can nominate any local businesses of choice, only businesses located in Summerlin can be finalists. Look for the Best of Summerlin logo proudly displayed at your favorite community spot.
