2021 Rocket City Mom Family Favorite Award Winners

We’ve been on quite a wild ride this past year and one of the main takeaways for many of us was how important it is to support local small businesses. It’s one of the reasons we started this award program so many years ago and why we push so hard to get local families to participate. This year we had more than 4,000 readers cast votes for their Rocket City favorites.

Again this year there were several really close categories, which resulted in the most ties we’ve ever had. What a wonderful problem! So many beloved attractions and businesses that we can’t decide between them 🙂

A reminder that what makes our award unique is that BOTH the nominations and votes are done entirely by our readers, this is a true people’s choice award and everyone involved should be proud. Congratulations to the nominees and winners alike. When there are so many people and organizations out there working hard, we are all winners!
