What Bert Has To Say About Florence-Muscle Shoals Metro Area


Florence is the center of the shoals area of the Tennessee Valley and is adjacent to the more well-known and colorfully named town of Muscle Shoals. The area is business friendly, and located here are several manufacturing industries, including aluminum, rubber, and steel, but the job base has declined from its strongest years. The Cost of living Index is low and home prices are attractive. Crime rates are low for the region.
