After weeks of nominations and tens of thousands of votes, we at Galveston.com are thrilled to present the Winners of the 2016 BEST OF GALVESTON AWARDS, "the Oscars of the Gulf Coast" according to The Houston Chronicle.

During the month of October, 2016, thousands of Galveston.com visitors took part in nominating literally hundreds of Island businesses, organizations, and people for the annual Best of Galveston Awards.  From those nominees, the Top Five vote-receivers in each category then continued to the Voting Phase, which continued during the months of November and December, 2016.

Once the record number of votes were counted?  The Top Three vote-receivers in each category were awarded with Gold, Silver, & Bronze titles.

Congratulations to all our winners!
