Welcome! Let’s get to know our neighbors.
We know genuine connections with neighbors next door and business owners down the street make for a more meaningful experience. And we believe getting to know people in our community should be simple. That’s why Stroll meets you where you’re at – your mailbox.
We are grateful to serve this amazing community.
Every month, we share stories from and about different residents within our neighborhood.
See below for a few of our recent favorites.

Advertise with Us
Since advertising in Stroll Grand Lagoon magazine, I have gotten new customers. But more importantly, this keeps us top of mind with the residents who receive this. There are many other HVAC companies in this area that a homeowner can choose from, but this magazine and all the social media advertising they give us keeps our brand out there, consistently being seen.

We love being a part Stroll Grand Lagoon magazine. It's a certain group of residents we want to be connected to and continue to let them know about what we have going on in our café. We also love all the social events they put on throughout the year, and I especially like the social media exposure we get through working with them.

Stroll Grand Lagoon is my favorite magazine! It's a beautiful publication that I proudly keep on my coffee table all month long. I look forward to seeing who is on the new cover every month, and I love the stories about our locals and residents and learning more about them and their families.
