Vote for Lighthouse District Businesses for "Best of 2020"

Posted on February 3rd, 2020 by lighthouseave

The New Monterey Business Association encourages you to vote for Lighthouse District businesses in Monterey County Weekly's Best of 2020 Readers Poll. We're a group of small, owner-operated businesses, but we pack a great punch when it comes to quality food, goods, and services.

You can even vote for the Lighthouse District itself, which was nominated for "Best Shopping District / Center." Check out our Lighthouse "Best Of 2020" Voting Guide below (listed in voting order).
