The honest local

Helpful guides written by (real) locals. No pitches, no fuss, no BS.

Hey neighbor!

The belief is simple: Everyone deserves a fair shot at a good life and sometimes (hell, often ) that requires leaving your comfort zone.

That's where we come in. This website is run exclusively by locals that strive to help folks get acquainted with a new city or state before the moving truck arrives.

This is a passion project -- no secret partnerships or ulterior motives here. We're just real people sharing real stuff.
