Jennifer Hewitt, a lifelong resident of the NC Foothills, and Kenny McComb, who has deep roots in the area, operate as a husband and wife team to bring the best of the locals to you. We know how difficult it can be for a new mover to find the best things in the area, so we created BeLocal NC Foothills. Designed to make you feel like a local from the moment you arrive, our physical and digital publication features all the best things to do, places to go, and businesses to use – all from the locals themselves.

Inside you will find fun for the family, must-eat-at restaurants, activities for the kids, pet-friendly hangouts, and so much more. The best part? Every business recommended has been approved as a top-quality, local favorite, guaranteed to provide you with a service you can trust. Whether you're here for a long time, or just passing through, BeLocal will help you navigate our home-sweet-home, as if you've been here your whole life. Welcome and have fun!
