Talladega County Reviews

There isn't enough money in the city to make it welcoming. But it is close enough to Oxford which is a large and fast-growing city, plus it's close to the interstate putting you almost equal distance between Atlanta Georgia and Birmingham Alabama. There really isn't much of a selection for food or nightlife activitity. It's just your average country city I suppose.

I love my little county! There are many things to do from young to old. If you are a nascar fan then this is the place for you to be!
I see the beauty in the architecture of the old south and the rolling hills and mountains are beautiful. People are friendly, depending on the neighborhood. There is much poverty and actually reminds me of the south side of Chicago.
