Birmingham is great Posted On: 5/15/2007 10:41:10 AM
I have lived here since Jan 2001, and have grown to love it. It has all the big city stuff, but still a small-town flavor. Everyone is generally nice and helpful, and the weather is good most year-round. The best schools and housing is found generally along and south of Red Mountain in the suburbs. Traffic is never too bad, just thick from 7-8 am and 5-6 pm.
Lots of great restaurants, shopping, clubs, and for the family-oriented: Churches and Oak Mountain State Park, a diamond of a facility. Area police are dependable and professional, and health care is superb. Only bad areas are the areas north of I 59-20. Jobless rate is almost non-existent. If we could just get the elected officials to get some things done, it would be outstanding. I rate birmingham a 8 on a 10 scale.
