You Voted! Here are the 2019 Family Favorite Winners!

We all have our favorite family spots, be they favorite restaurants, parks, play places or date night activities.

But we can always use a recommendation for something new and different. We asked readers to weigh in on their favorite places to dine, shop, play and take the kids, and you delivered with some old standbys and new ideas. Family Favorites also highlights businesses that help us run the household—from consignment shops to veterinarians and hair salons. Thanks to everyone who voted and to these great businesses for doing what they do best!
