About In The Know Local

In The Know Local is an online magazine dedicated to celebrating the best that our favorite cities have to offer. We handpick one local guide to co-create fun, fresh itineraries with. Then we share them with you so you can go forth, at your own pace, in your own time, discovering your city in an exciting way.

Who we are:

We're a team of travelers, writers, designers and dreamers who love going beyond the surface when it comes to discovering local.

What we're super good at:

Packing light. Trying something new. Herding office dogs.

Why we created In The Know Local:

Every city has a Top 10 this and a Top 20 that list ... which is great but it doesn't actually lay out a plan for discovering the best of a city. We created In The Know Local so with zero planning you can head out, follow our expert guide itineraries and discover new things about your city. Did we mention a great local adventure with zero planning? It's a big bonus for us and we hope it is for you too!

Who are our In The Know Local Guides?

Here's one thing we learned while scouting our fav cities for our handpicked guides: The one expert who really knows a city inside and out is most often,  a realtor. And so, we talked to realtors. We handpick the ones who were a right fit for our style and team and we're proud to give them a stage to share their local wisdom, love and knowledge with residents and visitors alike.

What if my city isn't listed? 

We're launching cities as quickly as we can but it takes time to find the exact right local guide. You can help us out ... If you're a realtor, or know one who totally rocks it when it comes to knowing your city, send us a note and we'll get in touch with them pronto  Use this form to get touch.
