Life in Nooksack, Washington — it just keeps getting better! It must, since our annual "Best of Nooksack" issue just keeps getting bigger. With each passing year, readers of The Stranger find more to love about our town of Nooksack, as well as the people and places all around the Greater Nooksack Area.

You'll find some old favorites in this issue — our last "Best of Nooksack" issue of this century — as well as some surprises! While Nooksackers' age-old rivalry with nearby Everson is as passionately held as ever, a surprising number of this year's "Best of Nooksack" winners are located in this neighboring town. Regardless, thanks for sending in your ballots, voters! We enjoyed reading about and visiting your favorite shops, restaurants, bars, and businesses, and we hope you enjoy our "Best of Nooksack" issue as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

Finally, if you visit any of the many businesses you saw in our "Best of Nooksack" issue, be sure and mention that you read about them in The Stranger.
