Meet Your Publisher
Hello, I am Andy Burton, publisher of BeLocal Chicago Loop. I’m thrilled to introduce you to this real resource for the community designed to help welcome all new movers to our area.
I remember when we uprooted our family from California and moved to Chicago over a decade ago. In the first few months, my wife, Emily, and I were quickly trying to establish new routines with our small children in a new and unknown place. We wanted the transition to be as smooth as possible for ourselves and the kids, but it was overwhelming. We were pros at using Yelp to find all the “highly recommended” places but still felt like the recommendations came up short.
That’s why we created BeLocal Chicago Loop, your personal guide to local eateries, libations, events, museums, parks, tips from locals, and so much more. This will give you one less thing to figure out in the whirlwind of moving. I hope this publication serves as a helpful resource as you establish your new routines. Welcome Home!

The publication has been a tremendous asset for me and my family in getting us situated and familiarized with the area. The layout is upscale, easy to navigate, and filled with vibrant color and content. The local tips add an instant trusted connection from one resident to another. Thank you for putting together such a beautiful and helpful piece!
The BeLocal magazine undoubtedly helped my family and I discover what makes Lincoln so special. We feel so warmly welcomed to the area, and our whole family has enjoyed reading and looking through the publication.
BeLocal is a high-quality magazine that demands the attention of anyone that lays eyes on it. I wish I would have had access to it when I moved!
