After living here almost two years I am SOOO ready to move back to Birmingham. Another reviewer had similar thoughts so I know I am not alone. Huntsville is not a great place to live/work. First of all it has the ugliest most overpriced houses - most houses in the desirable areas like Blossomwood, and Jones Valley are 1970's ranchers that are just plain ugly and overpriced for what they are. We don't want to live all the way out in Madison or in Hampton Cove. Downtown is the only pretty area besides the Ledges.
Literally the worst drivers in the world live here - I think it is all the old people. Lots and Lots of retirees here who don't know how to drive. People here are either weirdo engineers with no personalities, bumpkin trash from the outer areas, and the old huntsville elite. The "Old Huntsville Elite" are not friendly or welcoming. The engineer crowd is weird and the bumpkins well enough said. My husband is even from here and it still sucks.

Huntsville only has one good restaurant Cotten Row - other than that no good dining and awful service. Seriously the service in restaurants in Huntsville is teenagers who have no concept of service.....awful! Yes Huntsville does have a symphony so that counts as "culture." But other than that it sucks!
