Default Young Professional Moving to Montgomery

I am relocating to Montgomery for work from Tampa, Florida. I'm not from Tampa originally but one thing I love about living here is the large amount of young professionals 22-35 who regularly participate in the community from volunteering to team sports. I was wondering what the young professional community is like in Montgomery and what are some good avenues for getting myself involved and of course meeting people.

Additionally, I would love some advice about what neighborhoods to live in. I will be working downtown and would love to keep my commute short. But of course a safe neighborhood is a priority, and I would love to have an access to restaurants/grocery stores, and hopefully be near other young professionals. Any insights you can give would great, because I've had hard time getting detailed information off the internet.

Having been in Mont., for a few years now I would say where to live would depend on what your into. If you are say-more preppy, into golf-live on the East side of Mont., (east of Eastern Blvd.) However, if your into more say older homes, yards with trees, and more hip (artsy, earthy, whatever you want to call it) go to Old Cloverdale. I'm sure you will find young singles in either area. Overall there's not a whole lot to do here. However, the Shakespeare Theatre is very nice and probably the best thing about the city.

Thanks Deb, I've heard cloverdale mentioned before. Is it a very diverse area? In terms of housing I've not seen a lot of apartments listed in that section. Is it mostly single-family homes?

Yes, it is mostly single homes. I'm not even sure there any apts., in the area. However, I know I've seen some condos or cluster type homes near Huntington campus. Good luck.
