Meet the Best of White Bear Lake 2022

Readers reveal their hometown favorites that make White Bear Lake such a beautiful place to live, work and visit.

There’s so much to love about White Bear Lake, from unrivaled entertainment and activities to passionate businesses and organizations. While White Bear Lake Magazine finds ways to celebrate this exceptional community each issue, there’s something special about our annual Readers’ Choice Survey — when we all come together to identify the area’s brightest stars.

It’s time, once again, to honor the businesses, restaurants and services that make this community thrive. In January, we asked you to weigh in on our refreshed write-in poll, and you showed up, sharing your top picks in a plethora of categories. Finalists were announced this spring, and now it’s time to present your winners and runners-up for 2022 Best of White Bear Lake!
