Moving On: Meeting new People in a new city!

After Two Men and a Truck moved you in your new home, and all your things are unpacked and organized, it’s time to explore your whole new world! We came up with a few ways you get out on the town and get to know your new city, and your neighbors!

 

  • Check out your City’s local Website

Typically, your city will have a Neighborhood Association & City Services page where everything from civic leagues, to events happening in the neighborhood will be listed! There might also be a listing of tourist attractions and popular food places you can try.

 

  • Volunteer!

Have a passion for pets, kids, or your community? Go to your local coffee shop and see if they have a community board. People often post flyers of events and chances to volunteer!  There should also be local websites that have other opportunities to volunteer.

 

 

  • Be Creative

Type out a fun little bio of who you and your pets are and put it in your neighbor’s mail box! Include a little sweet treat, or handmade craft to make it personal! If there is a popular sport, or food your city is known for, it make your treat themed for added fun!

  • Be active

Take walks around your neighborhood! You’ll probably run into a neighbor doing lawn work, or walking their dog, that’d be a great way to introduce yourself and get to know the neighborhood pets!

 

 

 

Moving to a new town can be hard. Not knowing where things are located, not knowing the best routes to work, and not knowing any people can all be challenges to relocating to a new town-but that’s also part of the fun! Getting out of your comfort zone and trying new things will help make you new memories and even some new friends!
