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.

"We started publishing our neighborhood magazines 8 years ago as our daughters were getting ready to leave for college. What I thought would be a part time hobby has become a full time business that we absolutely love. Getting to work with amazing local businesses and residents in the community is a gift. We are honored to be community historians, connecting people in unique ways. We love that we can create positive, highly anticipated monthly magazines that bring people together and bring joy to the community."

I just wanted to let you know we have received so many compliments on the article and photos in the magazine. Gary and I were on a walk last night, and [the people at] one of the homes we walked by said, “Oh look, it’s the famous couple on the cover of Lido Living!” We had not gotten our mail yet, so we had no idea it had already been delivered. The positive comments started to flow in. Please know how much your hard work is appreciated. It was a positive experience for us.

Lido Isle Residents
As a small business, identifying a marketing partner that aligns with your business goals and long-term vision is critical. Finding one with a personality you can appreciate and enjoy working with, is a satisfying plus. Needless to say, collaborating with N2 and Rob and Christy Gallagher in the Stroll and Greet magazines has been such an enjoyable experience. We've created valuable exposure for our business and recently added an additional two more magazines to our program. The connections we’ve made and the response we’ve had from the creative ads and feature articles over the past three years have been instrumental to our growth and presence in the community. Masters of their craft, trustworthy and principled, we highly recommend to anyone asking that, "yes, you should partner with the Gallaghers and Stroll and Greet magazines."

We moved to Lido in 2014 and raised our son here. We love living on Lido and making some of the best friends we have ever had here. When Christy approached me about featuring my business, I was thrilled and so happy to be a part of the magazine. This year has been hard for event planners, and the article highlighted a new concept my business Cat/Alina Productions was focusing on during Covid. We ended up gaining a lot of business from the article, and it also allowed me to meet many more neighbors and become more involved in the Lido Community. Lido Living continues to serve as a great resource to learn about local businesses, and we are so appreciative of the opportunity to be featured.
