I'm from Alex City and work at the lake - Lake Martin is a huge lake (700 mi of shoreline), so some parts of it are in the Alex City city limits, and some parts are 30 miles away. As for atmosphere, it is definitely a small town, but because of the lake, it has a lot of exposure to bigger cities like Montgomery (1 hr away) Birmingham (1 hr 10 min away) and Atlanta (2 hrs away).

Daytripper- You need to avoid Alex City like the plague. This is a dying, corrupt mill town that has lost its mill.

Lake Martin is nearby if your interested in paying too much for Lake property in the middle of nowhere...
