2013 Best of the Valley winners

For 2013, the 20th Best of the Valley, we’ve added 14 new categories to capture the growing celebrity scene and the season’s favorite activities, plus some of the sweetest memories a visitor can take home when they wistfully leave our desert behind. Thanks so much for the votes!
