Default Best cities in central Alabama near Georgia line?

Please name some cities that would be good for a young family, preferrably near Georgia and in the central Alabama area. I have never lived in Alabama or the South but am having to make the move to be closer to my mother in Columbus, Georgia and my aunt in Montgomery. What are some good cities in between those areas? THANKS! Your help is greatly appreciated.

You'd get better responses by posting in the appropriate forum: http://www.city-data.com/forum/columbus-ga/

But I'm guessing that you'd might want to look at Phenix City, Auburn, and Opelika.

Auburn, Alabama is a wonderful small (but growing) college town. It has a large university (Auburn) and has been really booming the last 15-20 years. It is between Columbus and Montgomery and is a nice place. The city does largely revolve around the university. The school means there are a lot of activities (concerts,sports, etc) happening.

Auburn/Opelika is where you want to be in the area. Close to both Columbus and Montgomery.

Auburn, Opelika, or Phenix City.


Eufala would be a distant choice.

Gadsden is IMO a lovely community. I would definitely consider it.

Gadsden: City of Gadsden

I think that some of the communities in the southern Birmingham metro are lovely as well: Mountain Brook, Homewood, Vestavia Hills and Hoover.
