My boyfriend just relocated to Brundidge Alabama for work. He is not sure how long he is going to stay so I'm hesitant on moving there. I haven't been for a visit yet but am used to cities like Philly, Miami, and New York. Obviously this is going to be a bit of a culture shock. I am trying to read up on each one. Troy seems like a college town and I am way past college age and it seems like a lot of housing is student housing there. I am worried about my own employment. Is there a lot of jobs and opportunity?

LOL.. Ok, well I'm sorry to giggle..but I'm from Alabama myself..and actually lived in Troy for two years about 10 years ago.. Its country time.. big time.. Troy has a college..and thats about it.. Brundidge/Goshen.. both lil hick towns.. in the middle of the boonies.. and this is coming from a girl thats a small town one.. If you are used to Philly/Miami etc.. You are in for a HUGE shock.. no club life, no museums etc... This is a small town where families are important..lots of churches etc.. I have no idea what the college kids do with their time.. (I'm pretty sure cow tipp'n is involved LOL).. ok, so that was a exaggeration.. but honestly..its a great place to live if you want quiet country life..NOT if you are looking for big city fun.. Hope that helps!

You'll have to define 'exciting.'

Can't help you on job prospects if you don't tell us what you do.

BLUF, no, its not 'exciting' by the standards of Philly, NY, or Miami. You are in for one h*lluva shock Hope you like peanuts!

If you are use to cities like Philly, Miami, & NYC boy are you in for a BIG surprise. South of Montgomery, AL it is straight country, boiled Peanuts, cotton fields, trailers, and the likes are the only things you will find south of Montgomery until you get to Mobile. Troy is a college town PERIOD. Nonetheless, it is growing, but the fact remains if it weren't for the University, Troy (the city) wouldn't be nothing. Went to college there and graduated a few years ago and the go to place was Montgomery or Dothan. As far as jobs, try looking in Dothan or Montgomery b/c I assure you, you will find nothing in Troy, Brundidge, or any of the surrounding areas. Good luck

There are plenty of hotels in Troy, try hotels.com or a site like that. The city needs them because when graduation takes place lots of ppl come from out of town so finding a place to stay will be easy.
