Five Fun Things to Do After You Move

Five Fun Things to Do After You Move

Five Fun Things to Do After You Move

Moving to a new home is not always fun and exciting. The fact of the matter is, when you are relocating from a house that you have occupied for many years, moving to a city or town that is unfamiliar to you, or having to downsize for financial or health reasons, moving can be stressful and worrisome.

Here at King Companies, we’ve assisted with many different types of household relocations over the years. From helping families move from the East Coast to the West Coast or vice versa and many points in-between, to assisting them in navigating through the complexities of international relocations, to downsizing to an apartment or condo located within their same community, or near a family member or caregiver – we have seen it all.

Through our comprehensive household relocation services, we can make any move as worry-free as possible. But, what about after your move? Once some (if not all) of the boxes are unpacked, settling into a new, or in some cases old community can be overwhelming for many. So, we asked our household relocation experts for their suggestions, and here are their top picks:

  • 1.Meet your neighbors. We all lead busy lives, but it is important to know who your closest neighbors are. If they don’t take the initiative, don’t be shy and introduce yourself. You can also learn more about your immediate neighborhood through social media. Tools like Nextdoor provide you with a way to connect with your neighbors online and learn about issues that affect your local community. And, many of these sites offer suggestions for doctors, dentists, hairdressers and barbershops, and even local restaurants.
  • 2.Attend a community gathering or event. Libraries and community resource centers including those run by the city government are a great place to learn about festivals, art exhibits, plays and performances, farmer’s markets and other events taking place in your local community. You can even check out the library or city websites to find events that might be of most interest to you. It’s a great way to learn about your community, meet your neighbors and have fun.
  • 3.Check out the local restaurant scene. Every community has its restaurants and dining establishments that serve as “fixtures” in the community. Ask your neighbors for their recommendations or forge out on your own to check out some of the local cuisine. Depending on the area in which you live, you may find excellent ethnic offerings including Chinese, Indian, Italian, Mexican and much more.
  • 4.Go shopping. You’ve probably discovered that there are a few new things you need following your move. Maybe you are looking for that perfect chair to fill a void in your family room, or a new dining room table. Check out nearby shopping districts for these items, and help your community by shopping local.
  • 5.Relax. It’s important to have downtime for yourself and your family following a move. Take time to enjoy your new home by finding places you can relax and rejuvenate. Local parks, walking trails and nature centers are a great way to take a break and relieve stress. Additionally, many local day spas offer discounts for first time visitors, so this is another great way to learn more about what your community has to offer.
