Spread the local love.

It's time to tell us about your favorite food trucks, watering holes and outdoor activities in southwest Missouri for our annual Best of 417 Readers Choice Awards presented by Simmons Bank! This year, our editors have done a lot of the groundwork for you, curating a list that focuses on local businesses and sights. Chains and franchises are included if they are locally grown, getting their start in 417-land. All you have to do is select your top pick or write in their name on the ballot below. Yes, there are 60 questions, but fear not! You can always hit "done" at the bottom, then come back later to update your responses. Plus, you'll be entered to win two tickets to 417's Whiskey Festival. You can only vote once, and voting closes on October 31 at 5 p.m. 

Your local faves with the most votes will appear in the February 2019 issue of 417 MagazineQuestions? Click here.
