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!
