Celebrating the best

Kendra Akers, publisher of STYLE magazine

A little good news…for a change.

In the midst of all the grim and scary news lately, whether it’s the virus, the riots, election drama, or the economy, it’s becoming more difficult day-by-day to turn on the news. That is why we here at Style magazine are super excited to share some great news with you this month. After over 30,000 cast votes, the results are in for our annual “Best of the Best” readership awards.

It’s so exhilarating to see all the nominations that were made, and once the list of finalists was narrowed down, it was exciting to see how many of you went to our Style website to cast your votes for your favorite people, places and events. As you will see when you read through the pages, there are many companies that win year after year. Businesses such as Babette’s Furniture, Cousin Vinnie’s Family Sports Restaurant, Prominent Fox Boutique, and many others. Congrats to them all for continuing to be the standard by which others are measured.

But that’s not all. The “Best of the Best” is not the only thing exciting about this issue. We have also compiled a list of on-the-water restaurants, called Dockside Dining. There aren’t too many things more relaxing than being out on the water on a warm sunny day. But what do you do when your tummy starts growling? We have the solution for you: a comprehensive list of amazing restaurants that you can easily cruise to by boat. Now all you have to worry about is which one to choose.

Even in the midst of a pandemic, the desire to visit interesting places never fades. Luckily, here in Lake and Sumter counties, you can find many places that are not the normally packed theme parks and beaches. Check out the Hidden Gems feature so that you can get outside, get some fresh air and start exploring.

In closing I would like to say, thank you for reading Style magazine. It is my passion to always serve you, put a smile on your face and make you feel happy about having chosen to live in such an amazing community in Lake and Sumter counties.

Stay well,

Stay well, Kendra Akers, publisher of STYLE magazine
