Mobile is my home sweet home. In this City of hope and opportunities, the future unfolds to everyone who resides here. People here are the epitome of "southern hospitality". You will fit in right away and build friendships and relationships that lasts a lifetime. People here add love to everything including the delicious seafood! There is absolutely nothing I want to change about this picturesque city. Residents there are family oriented and understand the importance of family values. Just come over to Mobile, Alabama where we are family!

Some areas of Mobile are safer than others, but overall I feel generally secure. The city has a problem with littering, but great steps are being made to remedy that, which I am very grateful for. I love living here!
I haven't had anything drastically bad happen to me. My main complaint is paving the roads, but that is slowly coming along.
I believe that all schools should incorporate life skills for students to learn so they will be well-rounded. Students will greatly appreciate this when they become adults.
The job market could be better as well. My experience is that, a lot of jobs are hiring but they won't hire you if you don't have the work experience to go along with your certificate or degree. How can one expect to gain the work experience if nobody gives them a chance?
