The Official Best Of originated in 2006 and has spread to over half of the states across the country. The Official Best Of, based in Hollywood, CA has researchers in Hollywood and other parts of the country that spend at least 2 months per state compiling a collection of the very best attractions and destinations in each given state. Once the research is complete and destinations are chosen in a state, a show is produced and aired. Each state’s show is promoted within that state as well as on a national level. Each feature is also featured on the OfficialBestOf.com web site. One distinction that sets Official Best Of apart from many other travel sites is that it doesn’t accept advertising on either its television programs or its website. The selection of attractions is entirely by merit, and lesser known but worthy attractions are given the same attention as famous ones.
As with each state production, The Official Best of Washington for 2011 will offer a great resource for those planning a vacation, day trip or outing for residents within the State of Washington as well as out-of-town visitors. Official Best Of is currently working on covering all 50 states. Visit www.OfficialBestOf.com to see the states already featured.
