7 brand new 2013 San Diego A-List categories

We review the top new San Diego A-List categories that for the 2013 contest

Shrewd observers may have already picked up the clues, but this year's San Diego A-List includes a number of new categories. After last year's contest, we sought out suggestions from voters and local business owners. After collecting as many recommendations as possible, the San Diego A-List team narrowed the list down to include as many local hot spots as possible. With voting underway, we take a look at just a handful of the new categories that are already getting plenty of love from San Diego area voters.


1. Best FroYo

Who doesn't love a frozen treat? In recent years, the frozen yogurt craze has seemingly taken over the dessert scene like an avalance bringing tasty topping, unique flavors and various gimmicks along the way. But what separates the best from the rest? The tasty toppings or flavor options? Or is it the novelty of self-service? Getting to the bottom of this froyo frenzy will be a challenge worth undertaking.


2. Best CrossFit

CrossFit is the workout trend taking the nation by storm. Combining indoor and outdoor activities in a group setting, CrossFit offers a unique alternative to the traditional gym experience. With an emphasis on strength and agility training, CrossFit is sure to give you a workout unlike any you've had before. So whether you are a seasoned athlete looking to bring your workout to the next level or just looking to shed a few pounds, CrossFit may be for you.


3. Best Local Brewery

When it comes to beer, the line between passion and obsession is a fine one. Between hearty porters, hoppy ales, and refreshing lagers, local breweries are raising the bar for beer around town. However the votes play out, with so many new and exciting local breweries, it's a great time to be a beer lover!


4. Best Beach

The San Diego area is home to some truly stunning beaches. Whether you love to surf, soak up the sun or just relax with friends, a day at the beach is never a wasted day.


5. Best Farmers' Market

The sights and smells of a farmers’ market are something to behold. Fresh fruit, artisanal products, fresh baked goodies, exotic vegetables and much more are available from local producers. But what makes one farmers’ market better than the next? It could be the location, the vibe or the vendors. Wherever you go, shopping at a farmers’ market is a great way to feel good about what you eat and where your money goes.


6. Best Veterinarians

For many, our dogs, cats and other furry creatures are more than just pets, they are extensions of our families. We want them to receive the same top-notch medical care that we do. But finding the right veterinarian is no simple task. You are looking for expertise, cutting edge equipment, and most of all compassion. Whether you are bringing your pet in for their first visit or bringing in an old friend, a veterinarian you can trust is a must-have.


7. Best Festival

Local festivals provide great entertainment for all ages. Whether the draw is music, food, drink or something else entirely voters will choose the festival they return to year after year for good times and great memories.
