Parent Choice Awards

Parent Choice Awards

Each year, we ask our readers and online followers to weigh in on their favorite family-friendly spots — local businesses, attractions, family services and more — in the Northeast Ohio Parent Choice Awards. 

For our seventh annual contest, parents voiced their opinions during the nomination period in March and the final voting period in April.

Some perennial favorites topped the ballots again this year, but they were joined by many new honorees. Here they are: the winners and finalists in our 2022 Parent Choice Awards.
