Andalusia Reviews

6 reviews
All Categories
I was born and reared in Andalusia. As a child, Andalusia was a great place to live. Upon becoming an adult and taking on responsibilities that accompany adulthood, it became increasingly difficult to 'spread my wings'. I would love to see the town spend more time and money opening up new businesses to lower the unemployment rate and create careers for the citizens that live there. A great amount of money was spend in the beautification of the city which looks wonderful, but there is still nothing for children and teens to participate in. Andalusia used to be a very community-oriented town, but in later years, I feel that aspect has declined. This is a great place to live if you are retired or enjoy small town living. The schools there are impeccable. It will be hard to find a job; however, even if you do possess a college degree. There are just not that many opportunities as one may find in a larger town or city. Overall, I rated the town as being average.
Review Andalusia
I've lived in the town of Andalusia all of my life (23 years) and I love the simple, slow-paced life. However, there really isn't good job opportunities or any night time fun. Everybody works at the same place and if you really want to have a good time, you have to travel outside of the city limits. I'd love to see a change to take place. Maybe some different restaurants, an actual mall, a nightclub, and some better jobs.
Andalusia is a nice small town with lots of good people. It has almost everything that you would want or need nearby. I think the worst part of Andalusia is the 9.5% sales tax. Local politicians waste too much money, but the city does have better facilities than others it's size.
