Hello, so glad you’re here!
I started Local Love and Wanderlust as a way to share my love for my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and my travel experiences. While researching for past travel adventures, I noticed there was a lack of blogs out there that focused on Cleveland and I wanted to change that. I knew I had something to offer to fill in the gap and I really wanted to showcase my city the way I know and love it.
Combine my love of Cleveland and travel and you’ve got Local Love and Wanderlust! A blog for me to share my local adventures, travels, photography, and stories. You can find extensive restaurant and hotel reviews, lots of nature, itineraries, and much more. During the pandemic, I’ve also decided to add some more lifestyle content as we’re all spending a lot more time at home these days.
The purpose of the blog is not only to be a place where I can share my adventures but a place to inspire and motivate you to travel and explore your own backyards.
In the meantime, I will continue to share travel content I’ve yet to post as future inspiration and I urge you to use your best judgment and stay safe when it comes to anything travel related.
Hello there, I’m Jen, blogger, and photographer behind Local Love and Wanderlust. I live in a cute Cleveland, Ohio neighborhood with my husband and our twenty-year-old kitty girl. We love exploring around town, randomly picking a place on a map to have an adventure, and traveling as much as we can.
Some of my favorite things are desert plants, hiking, the ocean, driving down the coast, reading as much as I can, laughing too hard at Vine video compilations, watching movies, and binging a show series. I love staying on top of pop culture, it’s my fountain of youth.
