Review of Huntsville, Alabama

Great small town--but VERY spread out
Star Rating - 7/31/2019
We are military that retired here. Yes, it's conservative & lacking in strong municiple mgmt, but we are fairly liberal from the North. I tell people to give Huntsville 1.5-2 yrs, & you will begin to see its a great little town as you meet friends & enjoy activities. We've lived her for 12 years & raised kids here. We are very active in the athletic community (running, biking, hiking, swimming, golf).
NEVER buy a house before you live here--deal with the inconvenience and little added expenses and RENT for at least a year. It is VERY spread out, & I became a realtor just because so many military folks made choices in home buying that they regret (ie, traffic patterns, distance from cultural activities, etc).
