our lucky 13th poll gives a snapshot of what our readers like, dislike, and downright love

For the last 13 years, we’ve turned to our readers – that’s you, gang! – to chime in and speak up in our annual Best of the Chippewa Valley Reader Poll. So to the more than 10,000 voters who took the time to give their opinions, thank you for letting us and your community know what you think.

As you peruse these results, keep in mind ways to take advantage of them. If you see a great thing you haven’t tried, go try it! This is big deal to us and – we believe – to this community. It starts with being active and engaged, trying things, going places, interacting with both your neighbors and your friends. So without further ado, here are the best of the best.
