The “Best of Orange County” is the Orange County Register’s annual guide to the best companies in Orange County, CA according to the newspaper’s readers. The “Best of Orange County” is in a sense, a walking or, rather, delivered billboard. This is the collective voice of the people speaking loud and clear! Each year the Orange County Register turns to its readers for help determining which company they consider to be the top dog in a specific category.
How are Best of Orange County winners chosen?
Voting takes place during the month of May with the Register readers choosing their favorites in five primary categories:
- Places to Go
- Shopping and Services
- Luxury Lifestyle
- Food and Drink
- Home and Garden
Among these categories are subcategories ranging from best bakery to favorite beach, best real estate company to best limo service! Categories were won by businesses with the most votes in a subcategory for which they were eligible.
Sampling of subcategory winners

The smaller category of Luxury Lifestyle recognized just a handful of subcategories such as Best Day Spa, Best Resort and Best Limousine Service to name a few. Just who are those winners?
