Hello! I've been with N2 for over five years and launched BeLocal Western Chicago in 2020. BeLocal is the resource guide to the best places to go, things to do, and businesses to use in and around Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, and Lombard. Why? The content comes from current residents. It is filled with their favorite restaurants, boutiques, parks, fitness centers, upcoming events, and more!
BeLocal is designed to be a word-of-mouth guide from current residents to new residents so they can find the hidden gems, hot spots, and high-quality businesses quickly. I'm always looking for our top businesses to introduce and recommend to these new movers. Please reach out if you'd like to learn more!

The best part about moving to Wheaton was getting a guide on just about everything our family need to know and find! And we loved all of the "Local Tips" throughout the magazine!
I am so happy I partnered with BeLocal Western Chicago. It's such a great opportunity to connect with new families! We love getting to actually meet them, plus other local business owners at all the social events.
I love all of the events that BeLocal hosts in the area and how I can meet so many new moms like me!
