It's a new year, and it’s time once again to turn your attention to the yearly tradition unlike any other – Best of the Pacific voting season!

For the past 23 years, our annual Best of the Pacific magazine has been the authority on the best places YOU need to go in the Pacific. How do we know? Because you told us so!

You’ve made your voices heard over the years, and in turn, informed fellow members of the military community like yourselves of the Pacific’s best attractions, restaurants, festivals, Sunday brunch, getaways and more.

Know where you can get a great phone plan with friendly service? Or is there an off-base dentist you tell all your friends about? We want to know! We also want you to tell us why you like it so much.

Voting is quick, easy and you just might get your name in the magazine! Take a few minutes and vote for all your favorites at bestofpacific.stripes.com. And if you do, you may qualify to win a $300, $200 or one of four $50 Amazon gift cards.

Thanks to your input, every year we’re able to make Stars and Stripes community products to help you enjoy your stay in the Pacific. That’s what we’re all about. As we are fond of saying, our papers, websites and magazines “are about you, for you, and in some cases, by you.”

The votes keep rolling in year after year and it’s all thanks to you! We had a great turnout in 2023, and we expect nothing short of a record number of votes in 2024. Vote and share so even more of you can experience the best the Pacific has to offer!
