Hello All,
My fiance and me will be calling Cullman, AL. home in about three weeks. I am in need of some info about cable tv (we prefer it over direct tv) and high speed internet with the cable. But, curious as to which company is the best in service and performance, any ideas? Also interested in ideas on best places to purchase organic foods and such. We are very excited after finding a new home there this past week! What are the best schools in the area? I am also looking for a holistic doctor or naturopath. When do you find it starts getting cool? I am very much looking forward to the change in weather! One last question, how often does the area see tornadoes? What is the best place to have a coffee? I love the downtown area and am suprized at how populated this little town is in realtiy. So happy!! Thank you for your time and opinons...

Sunny, I don't think anybody frequenting this board is familiar with Cullman. I do love AllSteak, but can't tell you anything about cable/internet service or coffee.
But...much good luck to you!

Southlander, Thanks, for your info and have to wonder, why isnt anyone familiar with Cullman? Maybe because its a smaller town? Hum.

Comcast, Windjammer and AT&T are the cable companies.

Also interested in ideas on best places to purchase organic foods and such.
You can find a farmer's market or stand to buy farm grown fruits and veggies especially right now.

We are very excited after finding a new home there this past week! What are the best schools in the area?

I am also looking for a holistic doctor or naturopath.
Also finding a holistic doctor is probably wishful thinking. I think my doctor in Arab also has an office in Cullman.
When do you find it starts getting cool? I am very much looking forward to the change in weather!
It usually starts getting cool in October in the low 80s and 70s during the day and the 60-50s at night. The fall colors start in Nov usually although they are predicting we may not have a real fall this year it may go right into winter.. Listen to the locals they can tell by the wooley bugs and other things how cold it is going to be.

One last question, how often does the area see tornadoes?
Tornadoes are a fact of life here. There will be warnings and the TV does an excellent job of telling you where the tornadoes are and their path. Get a weather radio at WalMart. The seasons are in the fall and spring

What is the best place to have a coffee? MacDonalds? just kidding.. but a lot of folks do go to MikeyDs in the AM.

I love the downtown area and am suprized at how populated this little town is in realtiy. So happy!! Thank you for your time and opinons...

I live about 20 miles from Cullman, I do know of one member who lives near Cullman but she doesn't post here very often.

The city is dry so no booze at all sold in Cullman or in the county. They do have a Hobby Lobby if you are into crafts.

You can check the schools here. You are moving to a small city and unless you can find a private school you have no selection.

If you are in the city.. or county depends on where you go to school. Some cities will let kids go to the city school even if they live in the county. Check the schools below

Alabama schools - AL elementary, middle and high school information

Let me know if you have any questions

Oktoberfest? Seeing the largest wooden structure in Alabama? It seems like a decent enough place even though it doesn't have a mall.

But fabulous food.
And don't forget about All Steak restaurant. And Ave Maria Grotto.
Holistic doc? Natural food store?
Good luck with that....it's a small, rural community...but you never know.

Anyone bother to get some info on the original Octoberfest? Yeah! It is mostly American/Japanese and whatever falls inbetween but Cullman is even dry and real fake faux. No offense Keeper it just turns my stomach when I see it. Tofu burgers on wraps and sake instead of hamburger and cheap beer:>)
