Wilmington, NC – ideal-LIVING magazine announces the 2nd Annual “The Best of the Best” in towns and residential communities in its Summer 2017 edition. These awards will also be posted at www.ideal-LIVING.com/2017BestoftheBest.
“Given the very positive response last year to our first ‘Best of the Best‘ feature,” said ideal-LIVING Editor and Associate Publisher Kelly Godbey, “we refined our selection process and created some new categories that we think better reflect the interests of our readers. The goal will always be to help retirees and families choose the place that’s ‘The Best‘ for them.” Godbey added that “The Best of the Best” honorees for 2017 are organized into three broad groups—Destination, Life, and Home— with winners named in a total of 24 categories.
Ideal-LIVING editors have chosen Babcock Ranch as one of the “Best of the Best Eco-Friendly Communities.” Nominations were submitted, the editorial committee then researched and chose those communities/developments they felt best represented the spirit of the category.
