Found the perfect house, signed all the paperwork, moved all the boxes…now what? Who’s going to mow the grass, who’s gong to paint the walls, who should be the family doctor, who offers pet care, where is the grocery store? I had all the questions, too, when I moved.

Hello & Welcome! I’m Tanya, Owner and Publisher of BeLocal Upper Miami Valley: your Local resource guide to the communities North of Dayton. My husband, myself, and two children moved to the Dayton area about 12 years ago as the last stitch in my husband’s military career. Moving, finding resources, and connecting with community are my specialties. I know moving is hard and finding local businesses to Trust can be even harder. I am here to help! I put my heart and soul into creating this guide from sitting down with every business owner to attending community events and talking with long-time locals. Use this guide as your Word-of-Mouth recommendations to Best businesses in the area, enjoy!
