2018 Family Favorites




Six years ago, the staff at MetroFamily Magazine set out to design an annual contest to point local families to the most family-friendly businesses and services in Oklahoma City.

The result was Family Favorites, an annual "best of" award campaign that relies completely on nominations and votes from our readers to determine the best family-friendly businesses in the Oklahoma City metro. Just receiving a nomination for a Family Favorite award is a great recognition and winning one means you’re really doing things right. 

Below, find the dozens of local businesses our readers voted to the top for 2018. These businesses, attractions, professionals and non-profits are the reason the Oklahoma City metro is a great place to raise a family. Congratulations! And look for our Family Favorite voting which will launch in early 2019.
