Our story.


BeLocal is the definitive guide for new residents. Through helpful tips, stories from area experts, beautiful photographs, and informational listings, our magazines make everyone feel like a local, even and especially when you’re not (at least, not yet).

The inaugural edition of BeLocal hit mailboxes in 2017, but our creators have been industry success stories for more than a decade. N2 Publishing, the company behind BeLocal, began in 2004 and has grown to become a leading producer of niche print publications – even ranking on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing, private companies in America every year since 2010.

At N2, we’re best known for our custom neighborhood publications, but as we expand, so do our ideas and offerings. Our flagship product caters to affluent neighborhoods, but we also saw an opportunity to introduce new homeowners to the best their area has to offer. Enter BeLocal. Through this magazine, updated annually and delivered free of charge to recent homebuyers, we share everything residents need to know to feel like a local in their community – contact information for emergency services and utilities; lists of area schools, churches, sports leagues, and cultural institutions; and details on top attractions, hidden gems, and local history.
