What Bert Has To Say About Anniston-Oxford-Jacksonville Metro Area

Anniston is an unremarkable town now known for the Anniston Army Depot and the Talladega Superspeedway, both nearby. The army depot is the mainstay of the economy and nearby Talladega Mountain provides recreation opportunities. At one time, the area was a planned company town, and later a health resort, and there is still some historic interest in town. Oxford is a smaller tow n south of Anniston located on the east-west I-20, and its location on the freeway has brought some new development and commercial growth. Cost of living profile is attractive, but is overshadowed in overall ranking and scoring by the relative lack of other features and amenities.
