If you don’t already have a LinkedIn profile, I’d start there. It makes searches easy based on your experience and interests. Otherwise I’d go to company websites you might be interested in working at and go to their career page to see if they offer internships.
Businesses big and small offer internships, depends on what your degree is for how many opportunities there are. Many state agencies have internships as well, I’d check them out too.
Different employers will offer work near you. The best internships are heavily determined by the career field.
Also, I feel that 'best' is subjective. What best means to you may not feel best to another student.
Generally, find a company that can give you experience in the job you want, and find a company that matches your values & respects your well-being. You can find local companies on Indeed, LinkedIn, or at career fairs.

Utilize online job portals and internship search platforms, such as Indeed, LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and InternMatch, to search for available internship opportunities based on your location, industry, or specific keywords. Many larger organizations also advertise internship opportunities directly on their websites.
Tap into your personal and professional networks by reaching out to family, friends, professors, alumni, and professionals in your desired field. Attend career fairs, industry events, and join relevant student organizations to expand your network and increase your chances of finding internships through referrals.
