Meet the 2018 Best of Southwest Illinois winners

Southwestern Illinois is full of small-town charm, family-friendly neighborhoods and great schools. This year, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch asked its readers to vote on the businesses, community amenities, people, restaurants, and services that reflect Southwest Illinois’ unique values. With over 100 winners, the greatest of Madison, St. Clair, Monroe and Macoupin counties found their place on this reader’s-choice list of The Best of Southwest Illinois.

This year, three national businesses were also recognized as the best of Southwestern Illinois for their contribution to the area. All About Eyes, Marcus O’Fallon Cinema and Smallcakes Cupcakery were honored for showcasing local business friendliness from a nationwide chain.

On Thursday, July 26, Gateway Classic Cars in O’Fallon, Illinois, hosted The Best of Southwest Illinois event to celebrate the local winners.
