It’s been a difficult time to be the best at anything. Despite the hardships the Coachella Valley has endured, many eateries, shops, attractions, and hotels have overcome the seemingly impossible to earn the coveted title of Best of the Best.

This year, we take a closer look at what makes our honorees special.
