The best of the best were honored at Caesars Windsor today, as part of the Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island initiative.

In an effort to not only give local businesses exposure, but also to give residents the chance to vote on their favourite hot spots, a project began in November on social media known as the Best of Windsor Essex Awards. After 3,500 nominations were placed, voters helped narrow the search down to the top five in each of the eight categories – and today, the results are in.

“It’s important for the businesses to be showcased and highlighted in such a way,” said Gordon Orr, CEO of Tourism Windsor Essex-Pelee Island. “But at the end of the day it’s where the residents like to go in a community that visitors sort of gravitate to and by doing this we’re giving some exposure to them as one of the best of the best, we increased some social media activity over it and at the same time it helps us promote the region by saying if you’re looking for a best diner on a budget, or if you’re looking for the best hotel, this is what the community is saying.”
