Voting Begins in Search for 2022’s “Best Harbor” in the U.S.

On Monday, April 18th 2022 voting began in our 4th annual “Best Harbor in the U.S.” contest!

Participation is free and open to everyone. Vote for your harbor HERE.

Voting for this year’s Best Harbor contest is open from April 18th through May 31st, 2022. Participation is limited to one vote per user. People can vote on any of the 1,400+ harbors US Harbors provides coastal weather and tides for, from Maine to Hawaii, Florida to Alaska, and the Great Lakes. The winning harbors will be announced on Tuesday, June 7, 2022. Special commemorative plaques recognizing their win will be given to the Overall Winner, and each of the 6 regional winners (e.g., Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Gulf Coast, Pacific, and Great Lakes). Additionally, US Harbors will throw a special live Awards Event with harbormasters and residents of the winning harbors on Tuesday, June 14th, 2022, at 3pm EST.

We’re also excited to announce that we’ve been adding more and more harbors to our website every day! The following communities are new to our Best Harbor competition.

In 2021 over 200,000 people from around the country participated in the annual contest: they voted online, shared photos and stories of their harbors, and most importantly they spread the word in their local communities to get others to join them. Previous “Best Harbor” winners have included Charlevoix, Michigan (2021); Depoe Bay, Oregon (2020); and Padanaram, Massachusetts (2019).
