Can anyone tell me a little abour Greenville, Alabama? It looks like a nice quiet little town. Is it single mom and child friendly? How much is the average rent?

Just a typical small town, very safe. You could probably rent a decent place for $500-550, a decent job might be difficult to find though, especially right now.

When I lived in AL in the late 90s, I passed through Greenville several times. I also stopped in Greenville 2 years ago and it had not changed much from the 1990s. It's about 50 miles south of Montgomery on I-65, which is too far (IMO) to commute every day. I suppose some people that work at the big Hyundai factory on the far south end of Montgomery on I-65 commute from Greenville, but that's much closer than going all the way into central part of the city. I can't think of any large place of work besides public employees (county, city, schools, FD, PD) or hospitals / medical.

Greenville is nice little town that's turning into a suburb of Montgomery. It has seen some good development in recent years.

If you like small towns, then you will love Greenville. It's definitely got a bit of a "Mayberry" feel, from my limited experience of it. Jobs will be hard to come by though.

I hope that works out OK. Sad to see a small town eaten by a city. (This is from a person who lived in Plano, TX before DFW ate it.)

Nope...not growth....but if thats what anyone wants to call it go ahead. Like I said, I have lived here my entire life. I've been to much worse cities so we aren't THAT bad, but not that good either...Greenville is a "hole in the wall" lol

I spent a week in Greenville in a RV park after Katrina. The town and the people were wonderful. Now when I go thru Greenville, I always stop and enjoy a BATES turkey sandwich. They are good.
