  3. Scroll down on the home page to search all local listings by category.

There are also several ways to find upcoming events.

Leaving a review is one of the best ways to support your favorite local businesses and help others know what to expect when they visit. To leave a review, search for the business and open up their listing. Then scroll down the page until you see the “Reviews” section.

Enter the details of your review, choose your star rating, then add your name and email address (required). Note that your email address and website will not be published. When you’re through, click “Post Review.” Your review will be reviewed by moderators before going live. You'll receive an email notification when it's approved.

There are many benefits to creating a profile! Once you’re logged in, you can add businesses and events to your “favorites,” keep track of your reviews, create and share lists, and more.

Lists are a fun way to save and share ideas. From any business listing or event, click the small blue "Save" button just below the large featured image (see screenshot below). You can then save to a current list or create a new list and decide whether you want to leave it public or make it private. 

You can view all of the lists you've created by clicking on "My Account" in the top right corner and then clicking on "Profile." All lists you've created can be found under the "Saved Lists" tab.
