Whether you’ve moved across town or across the country, I know settling into a new area can be both exciting and overwhelming. When I moved from Austin to Georgetown in 2019, I found myself in a whole new world that I wasn’t quite prepared for.
The process of moving forced me to develop new relationships and new habits. Without a trusted resource like BeLocal Georgetown to light my path at the time, I struggled as I sought to make new friends, find my favorite local places, and hire local businesses that I could trust.
That’s why I created BeLocal Georgetown in partnership with Hello Georgetown — so you don’t have to struggle.
This guide is a collaboration — created especially for this moment in your journey — by people that love this city. I'd especially like to thank Sydney Decker, Managing Partner at Hello Georgetown, for contributing her time and talents to this guide. With her help, you have Georgetown's best resources and brands at your fingertips.
