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.
Stroll is made possible by the great local businesses who support this magazine. If you’re ever in need, please keep them in mind!

A Look Inside!
"It's a nice outlet to get a quick snapshot of what neighbors are up to. And a good resource for residential and business needs via the sponsors."

"Greg and I always enjoy receiving Life Among the Tulips magazine because it introduces us to new neighbors in Guilford and helps us learn more about our long-time neighbors. The publication is also a great resource for resident businesses and local companies that service our community. Finally, the special neighbor gatherings planned by Melissa at local restaurants and business brings us together with our neighbors in ways that strengthen community spirit."
