Albertville Reviews

It's a great place to raise a family. There is very little crime, there are many churches, housing costs are very affordable, and people are generally kind. Being a small town, traffic does get a little slow at times because there are mainly two highways to traverse the town, but traffic mostly moves quite well. There isn't much a nightlife. There aren't many high paying job opportunities, but the cost of living is relatively low. I moved here almost ten years ago, and I'll probably stay here for years to come.
Review Albertville
Albertville is a friendly, small town in Alabama. I have lived here for almost two years. Everything is very affordable; however, there is little to nothing to do. I find myself commuting to Gadsden or Huntsville for entertainment. There is a large Hispanic population so there may be jobs for bilingual individuals. There are excellent fitness centers and a few good restaurants, but nothing exceptional.
I love Albertville. I have lived here all of my life. Albertville is such a family friendly town with amazing school systems. Albertvlle is a very clean city and we always have visitors. It is such an amazing town to be a part of!
