Explore Local Box is a monthly subscription service that sends informational and fun boxes about different cities in the United States. Boxes contain locally made products and food items – all made by local artisans/small businesses.
Explore Local Box offers an Explore with kids! add-on to pique your children’s interest in the city that is being explored. A book, an activity book, or even a local toy geared towards children 4-10 years old is included with the add-on.
You can order any available box, and new boxes are added monthly. Want to make a suggestion? You can e-mail the company and let them know what city you would like them to explore in the near future.

It was fun to receive the box, and I really liked the following:
I really like Explore Local Box – and I think you’ll like it too!
