Visitors' Choice Awards

VC_logo_Vertcolorlow.jpgThe Visitors’ Choice Awards are the only awards chosen exclusively by visitors to Kansas City. The KCCVA developed the awards program in 2007 to give visitors the chance to recognize their favorite businesses and attractions in 50 fun categories, from Favorite Barbecue Restaurant to Best Midwestern Hospitality.

Finalists for each category were chosen by an online survey of visitors in June. To ensure that winners are true visitor choices, only votes from outside the five-county metropolitan area will be counted. Download a PDF of our 2013 Finalists and Winners.
