The Bulletin’s entertainment magazine launched Where to GO! in Central Oregon in 2017. The goal was to give local residents a platform to tell us their favorite haunts, hangouts and stomping grounds. About 300 people voted. This year, GO! Magazine wanted to foster participation from readers and Central Oregon residents. By collaborating buildingwide at The Bulletin to promote the survey online, on the street and in print. It worked!

The Where to GO! survey built momentum by starting with a nomination round. Once voters had identified their picks, the five top nominees in each category were pitched forward to the voting round. Throughout the nomination and voting process, The Bulletin vetted the entries thoroughly to keep the results honest.

We are excited to present the outcome of voters’ input. Congrats to all the winners!
