It’s not an overstatement to say that the Washington City Paper‘s annual “Best of D.C.” reader’s poll is one of the reasons the Route 1 corridor is growing.
When local businesses like Tanglewood Works, Artist & Craftsman Supply and Community Forklift do well, it helps build the area’s reputation as a funky enclave. When Vigilante Coffee gets a shoutout, it inspires day trippers to explore the Route 1 corridor.
The alt-weekly is again asking its readers to cast their votes in the “Best of D.C.”, and we’ve highlighted some local businesses to help you vote for your favorites along the Route 1 corridor.
