Eat local. Drink local. Shop local. We love everything about the local life. Did you know there’s a brand-new organization that’s all about loving on local, too? Meet Elmwood Strip.

If you’ve seen this account on Facebook or Insta, you know they are all about supporting and promoting our city’s local businesses. And that’s a mission we can get behind.

By teaming up with restaurants and bars in the area, they are working toward a common goal. Supporting local businesses keeps more money in our local economy, and that’s just one of the reasons Elmwood Strip is encouraging more people to choose local.
