number5Become familiar with your local Community

If you are new to the City, you definitely want to become familiar with your surrounding and community amenities. Thanks to today’s technology, it is easy to now find local shops, restaurants, parks, hospitals, etc. right from our phones. Use that information to Google and familiarize yourself with your new City.  If you are looking for things to do or restaurants to try, using the local Convention and Visitors Bureau for your City will be very helpful.
