  • A guide to becoming a local, finding community in a new place

    Moving to a new place is hard. You have to figure out your way around town, what shops have the stuff you need and which restaurants are your favorites. So what does it take to cross over from a new-comer to a local? And how do you find community in a new place you’re calling home? We talk to a journalist and author who wrestled with these questions.
