A few local favorites did well, as expected.

There were also some winners you should know about if you don’t already.
The College Park Aviation Museum took the top spot for best place to take the kids, while Indian Creek Playground was picked as best playground. Readers chose Tanglewood Works as the best locally owned shop, and ECO City Farms as the best community-supported agriculture.
But there were also some surprises.
Bird Kitchen and Cocktails in Mount Rainier was picked as best place for date night. OpenBarre Studios was selected as best hidden gem and best fitness studio. And the bear at Riverdale Park Station was chosen as best piece of public art.
