So Tell Us About Locals Love Us

Locals Love Us is a group of people who believe that there is a lot to love in every community, but that it's not always easy to find. Our world of constant negative news and online attacks can cause us to lose sight of what we really love about where we live. Our passion is to sift through the noise, discover what the locals love and then let everyone know about it. We call it sharing the love. We launched as The Local Best in 2004 and started expanding in 2011 as Locals Love Us.

How Did You Get Started?

It was a simple action that led to the found of Locals Love Us. One that takes place hundreds of times every day. Someone rolls into town and asks a person who looks like they've been standing in the same place for decades: "where can I find a good _____?" The locals know the answer to that question no matter how you fill in the blank. And while any one person might not know, if you ask thousands of people, you're bound to get the answer.

Who Has Time To Ask All Those People Who They Love?

That's why Locals Love Us exists. You see, we don't just ask anyone what or who they love the most. We ask everyone. We gather information/votes on our site, and then we tally and publish the list of the most loved places - everything from roofing contractors to real estate agents and restaurants - in an annual print and online directory. So when you come to town, you don't need to ask the question. We already did. Learn more about the Process.

We're here to deliver joy through our mission of sharing the love. We do this by caring for our culture, our people, and the communities we serve. We hire for passion and attitude, and empower people to make a difference. We look to Colossians 3:23 for inspiration, pouring our hearts into everything we do.
