Ask the Previous Resident/Landlord

Take a Stroll

Get to know the layout of your new neighborhood by going outdoors! Getting out and taking in the sights is the easiest way to get acquainted with your new neighborhood. Walk around and get a feel of the neighborhood streets, local establishments, and areas of interest near you.

Get to Know Your Next Door Neighbors

Introducing yourself to your closest neighbors is a great way to learn more about your neighborhood. It’s always great to try and establish a positive neighborly relationship with your neighbors, and you might even make a new friend in the process.

Visit Local Stores and Markets

Before getting back into the hustle and bustle of daily life, it can be a good idea to get acquainted with the stores and markets in the area. Visit local grocery stores to find the one you like best – get to know the layout so you’ll have a general idea of where everything is for future trips. 

Befriend Your Closest Neighbors

There is nothing like a positive neighborly relationship with the people who live closest to your house. It might even be worth popping over with a container filled with cookies just to say hello.
