Last summer and fall, we asked our reader ohana to share their picks of the best of everything the Hawaiian Islands have to offer for our 2014 HAWAII Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards.
Thousands of our Mainland U.S., Hawaii and international readers responded, packing their Readers’ Choice ballots with hundreds of selections for everything from their best Hawaii hotels and resorts, bed-and-breakfasts and inns, beaches and indoor and outdoor activities to their best Hawaii places to eat, scenic road trips, fashion designers, coastlines and much, much more. All of it, in more than 90 categories
We tallied their picks—more than 100,000 in all—to arrive at our final award-winner lists. You’ll find all 620 winners of our 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards, ranked in 96 lists, in the new March/April 2014 issue of HAWAII Magazine, on sale now nationwide or available for individual copy purchase on the Apple Newsstand for iPad and iPhone.
