what our tri-city audience is saying about fotf
"It’s amazing how Chrissy is bringing a community even closer together. Our values are aligned and am so thankful to have been introduced to #familiesonthefox."
"Families on the Fox is one of my favorite Facebook pages to follow!
I also really love the KIDS EAT FREE and DAILY EVENTS section on FamiliesOnTheFox.com. It definitely helps this busy family of four make the most of our free time!"
"I wanted to thank you for this page! You do an INCREDIBLE job letting us all know about local businesses and events.
You’re also my kind of mom!"
"I absolutely LOVE Families on the Fox!
I look at the FOTF Facebook page and website everyday for the events happening that day. We have enjoyed many things found through FOTF. It’s been fun finding new places to try!"
"Families on the Fox is one of my FAVORITE Facebook pages, websites, and local resources!
This website has been essential in helping me find new places to try. We discovered Harvey’s Tale storytimes through FOTF and I got an awesome FREE photo with my favorite girls because I saw it first HERE!
The owner, Chrissy, is honest and real and I can’t thank her enough for all her hard work!"
"Families on the Fox has become my GO TO for family plans. There is always something to do for families, kids, AND adults.
Being a local area realtor, FOTF has become a source I recommend all new Tri-City homeowners to for fun things to do to learn more about the area and try new amazing restaurants listed on FOTF's EAT LOCAL guide."
"I LOVE FOTF! Some pages I frequent most include DATE NIGHTS, KIDS EAT FREE guide, ideas for things to do on the weekends, and things to do when the weather doesn’t want to play nicely.
FOTF has a terrific social media presence & Chrissy is genuine, fun, and makes it clear you are seeing the real deal.
I love the way she enthusiastically promotes local businesses to help keep support strong within our community. THANK YOU FOTF for all that you bring to our Tri-City families!"
"Families on the Fox has helped give me the tools and opportunities to meet with other moms, residents, and people in the area that I might never have met if it were not for the website!
As a busy new mom and a non-stop business owner, I love that there is one place I can go to and see what is going on nearby for my son and I to partake in. The emails I receive are a wonderful, easy way to get the latest news on what's happening in town!"
"Although my children are grown, I still love seeing what’s going on around our beautiful Tri-Cities! I use FOTF as a resource daily to keep up on what’s going on around me! It is a tool for everyone! My favorite pages are the LADIES NIGHT OUT, HAPPY HOURS, and ADULT GUIDE!
Thank you Chrissy for bringing our community together with your incredible ideas, your love of supporting local charities and local businesses, and doing all of the grunt work for the plans of my nights out! This is a gem to our community!"
"I like FamiliesOnTheFox.com because it really is a one-stop-shop for all things in this area. I can look up ideas to do with the kids on the FAMILY GUIDE, or events and places to go for adults on the ADULT GUIDE. Chrissy has vetted the locations and deals to make this a really great resource for this community.
I've specifically used the CATERING and BREWERIES pages recently and FamiliesOnTheFox.com gave me some good ideas!"
"Every Monday morning I pop on FamiliesOnTheFox.com and check out the week, put the FUN in our families calendar and VOILA! Our week is set!
The amount of time saved searching for local fun ALONE has made Momming a little easier. Not to mention, the social media posts crack me right up! Thanks for being a light and a laugh on this Momming Journey, FOTF!"
"I love to shop local and found [several] places on the website. The Facebook posts give me great ideas on places to go, things to eat, happy hours, and discounts around the area!
Chrissy goes one step further and sends out a very informative email that points out more great things to do!
I refer many folks on Facebook who are looking for things to do or places to dine and shop to Families on the Fox! What a valuable resource!"
Families in ALL shapes, sizes, and ages LOVE FOTF!
