There's so much to love about New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and Seattle. In fact, there's a little too much to love about the neighborhoods that it's hard for a newcomer to discover and take advantage of all the things the city has to offer.

Common knows what it's like to feel like a newcomer, so we're consistently creating content for people like you to become pros and feel comfortable in a new environment. We know which restaurants locals love, we know where you can find the best produce, and we know what events you need to attend each season.

Our Beginner's Guides and Walkthroughs of major spots around the city are here at your disposal, so you can live like a local in a matter of days. They're easy to follow, comprehensive, and thorough, ensuring your comfort and convenience in getting to know your new neighborhood.
