Great place to live.

We moved to Montgomery after 5 years in Washington DC and it took us a couple of years to quit smiling all the time. The city is large enough to have most everything you want, yet small enough to get anywhere in 15 minutes or less. Montgomery has several colleges and a Law School. It has the world famous Alabama Shakespeare Festival. It has a AAA Baseball team and a beautiful stadium. It has many great parks, a nice zoo, and a beautiful river, plus the state capitol and Maxwell Air Force Base. It is truly a great place to live. Montgomery is an integrated city with a population nearly half white and half black. Race relations are good here.

Cons are the school situation where most black children attend public schools and many white children attend private schools. The schools have improved in the last several years.
