Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England, on newsstands April 23, has announced this year’s “Best of New England — Editors’ Choice” winners. This designation is awarded by Yankee’s editors and contributors, who name select restaurants, lodgings, and attractions in New England to the exclusive list. 317 awards were given this year including a dozen on Cape Cod..

This special issue also names 20 top events in Massachusetts, for a total of 120 events across New England with three of them also on Cape Cod. For 37 years, Yankee’s Travel Guide has been the most widely distributed and best-selling guide to the six-state region, providing readers with a comprehensive vacation-planning tool and daily reference.

“Every one of the 300-plus places we highlight contains an untold back story about someone striving for perfection, having a dream, and having the vision to make a difference, whether it’s a small artisan’s studio or a lobster-in-the-rough shack or a dressed-up steakhouse on a tree-lined Boston street,” says Yankee’s editor Mel Allen. “While it may be hard to create a business, the true challenge is in making it work, being good enough that it endures and brings people back. Those are the qualities we look for and reward when we say ‘Best of New England.’”

Here are the twelve "Choice" ones on Cape Cod:

  • Black Cat Tavern—Best Giant Lobster Roll, Hyannis
  • Cape Cod Baseball League—Best Pure Baseball, West Yarmouth
  • Cape Cod Beach Chair Company—Best Modern Beach Chair, Harwich
