We’re so happy you are here! Whether you just moved from the next town over, or across the country, settling into a new area can both be exciting and overwhelming. Within the first few months, you will likely be establishing new routines, getting to know local hotspots, looking into local professionals and exploring your new community’s resources. It can be daunting to think about everything you need to do to get settled in your new surroundings.

While you are unpacking, this is where BeLocal Winter Haven can help! You hold in your hands the best of the best and all the location's favorites. BeLocal Winter Haven was developed to give the locals' perspectives into everything the area has to offer. Inside you will find favorite restaurants, places for your four-legged friends, your kids, our history, and so much more. We truly live in the heart of Florida, just a short drive from either Tampa or Orlando and either one of our beautiful coasts!  

Additionally, the businesses listed throughout this publication are locally owned; they provide great products and services and genuinely care about our community. I would encourage you to give them the opportunity to win your trust and your business. When you support a local business, you support local jobs, local families and our community!

If you have any questions about this resource guide, want us to promote a great locally owned business, or are looking for additional resources to help you get settled into your new home and community, please feel free to get in touch with me!

We are proud to be a part of this amazing community and to help you connect with its special people and places. From our home to yours, WELCOME! Enjoy exploring the area, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our favorite local spots.    

All my best,

Tina Coffin
