Announcing the TSG Two Rivers & The Shore “Live Like a Local” Contest Winners


Last month we asked members of our community on social media to vote for their favorite places to Eat, Drink, Shop and Explore, as part of the “Live Like A Local” contest.  In the Two Rivers & the Shore area we are fortunate to enjoy an abundance of top notch restaurants, fashion-forward boutiques and  posh fitness studios for every type of workout.  There is truly something for everyone in the Two Rivers area.  With that in mind, it is truly a distinction to be voted as a local favorite in any category!

It is a pleasure to announce to winners of the Live Like a Local contest for 2021.  Keep an eye out for the Live Like a Local graphic.  It’s our Scout ‘Seal of Approval’ and will let you know that you are truly living like a local of the Two Rivers & Shore area!
