Andalusia, Alabama is your quintessential small, southern, American town that is rich with tradition and rooted in strong family, community values. They have a saying in town, "everything in Andalusia is 10 minutes away." That can not be anymore true. This fact makes it easy to get your children to and from school but also makes it easy to get to community events such as the annual Candyland which is when the town square is turned into a cute little Christmas getaway, with small house and a huge Christmas tree that lights the town ablaze. Candyland has been raved about by Southern Living Magazine.

As a young Yankee who moved to the south I find andalusia lacking. All the mom and pop shops are gone. Walmart moved in and they all moved out. There are no worthwhile restaurants for average income families. There is a strong upperclass presence here, but they have no intrest in fixing the lower class issues. Few jobs, poor opportunities for advancement. If you like to live on the cusp of poverty andalusia is the best place in the nation.
Although Andalusia is a very small town, it is quaint and filled with love. Everyone loves sweet tea, football, and each other. People look after each other and we always care about one another. Everyone knows everyone, and we all grew up together.
