Welcome to Patch – where you will find out what’s going on in your community. This site offers a great way to stay in touch with what’s happening in your city.

If you want to find out more about Patch and who’s behind it, check out the About section. You’ll find the link at the bottom of the page, along with the rest of the navigation options.

To get started, type in your zip code in the search field or select your State from the side menu. You also click on your State on the map of the United States. Not all the States, or the cities within them, are covered yet. But I hope they soon will be.

If you selected to pick a State, your next option will be to pick your city. If your city isn’t there I’ve found that you can still use this site by selecting a city close to you. It’s a great way to find things to do or events to go to that you might not have known about and are close to home!

If your city is there – then you’re in luck! Check out what is going on around your city! I’ve noticed most Patches include local events, local bloggers, local news, and more!

I think another great way to use this is if you were thinking of moving to a city. You could get the vibe of the town before you ever got there and be familiar with what is happening in that locality – politics, news, events, etc.

I think Patch is a wonderful site. I hope it grows and will cover the entirety of the United States! Check it out today!
