    Albany is kind of small but very exciting. It is very family friendly with lots of places to take your whole family including the mall or skate country. The schools are really good and have amazing teachers. They push students to be the best they can be. While the schools are great, the dress code is a good and bad thing. Students are modest but also have to buy two different wardrobes: one for school and a normal out and about one. In addition to the school, the commute time is fairly short. There is never much traffic or big events that hold up traffic.

    I was born and raised here, and love my city it is what the South is all about. Warm friendly people small towns with great potential for growth in the industry , attracting new business daily. This town has a lot to offer to people from larger cities who want to slow the pace down and enjoy some southern comfort, hunting ,fishing canoeing, you name it we got it.
