Bay Minette has all the goodness of small-town living--youth sports, walking trails, clean streets, a responsive city government--while being close enough to larger communities to accommodate any shopping desires you may have. We have manufacturing industries and great schools, plenty to do for a variety of ages and interests.

Bay Minette, Al is a small town on the way to the Beaches. Within the town and surrounding rural area the population is aroud 4-5000 individuals with many looking to move away as soon as possible. Restaurants are majorly lacking in the Bay Minette area, I can not name a single healthy choice option for fast food or dine in. Other improvements include more recreational physical activity for adults ( i.e adult kickball, wiffle ball, bowling league, flag football, .etc.) For youths up to the age 15/16 there are many opportunities for team sports, but there needs to be improvement in teaching of lifelong sports (i.e golf, tennis, cycling, etc.) The school systems can be improved if we elevated and stop regressing in requirements needed to graduate, or even strengthening the course curriculum to make more college/job ready youths who understand the various dynamics of todays society.

Bay Minette is a very loving, caring, friend small town. A great place to retire or raise kids. We support one another no matter. IF hard times come, we pull together and support at their time of need.
