Most people around there are from Alabama, so it's very 'local'. I personally would not move to the Montgomery area unless I had a dang good job, i.e. Alabama state government and/or Air Force. It's sort of suburban or whatever, but very average, not super nice or anything. It's livable I guess. Decent public schools if you care about that sort of thing.

The Robert Trent Jones Golf Courses are very nice, though.

I'm not a native of Alabama but my son moved down there for his job 6 years ago - he spent 3 years living in Fultondale as his job was in Birmingham. He got transferred to Montgomery and now rents a house in Prattville.

My husband and I love the area and it is one of the places we are considering retiring too. People aren't crammed on top of each other and yet there is everything we need there within a 10 minute drive. 3-4 hrs from the coast - Alabama, Mississippi or Florida, 1 1/2 hr drive to Birmingham. The houses are a little less expensive than some of the Birmingham areas like Pelham, Vestevia Hills and Mountain Brook. The areas usually between Birmingham and Montgomery see less tornadoes.

The only thing I'd watch out for and check into is whether the home is in a flood zone as some of Millbrook is.

If you're younger and looking for more activities than Birmingham and Huntsville may be a better fit - but if you want to get away from all the craziness - I suggest the Prattville Millbrook area.
