The 10Best Readers’ Choice Travel Awards are selected through public voting. Winners were announced on the 10Best website and on USA TODAY. Voting took place throughout the month of April.
10Best, which provides travel advice to more than 40 million travelers annually, asks its readers to choose the 10Best in a single category each week. These categories range from food, lodging and destinations to travel gear and things to do. 10Best’s travel experts select the top 20 nominees for each category and have the readers vote to determine the top 10 selections.
Nominees for all categories are chosen by a panel of relevant experts which include a combination of editors from USA TODAY; editors from 10Best.com; relevant expert contributors; and sources for both these media and other Gannett properties. The nomination panel for each award category is displayed on its associated contest page. All voting is digital and the 10Best Readers' Choice Award contest is accessible on the 10Best.com website.
