A nice, quiet rural neighborhood. Corner schools are great, if you are zoned for them. There isn’t much variety avail either as far as shopping and dining, but the quiet and safe streets make up for the lack of things to do. The commute to the city is long, but fast thanks to the interstates. I grew up on the other side of Birmingham and would have never considered myself a “city girl”, but now I have a completely different perspective and would recommend Dora over other rural areas nearby the city of Birmingham.

It's a small, suburban town where the residents are extremely friendly and hospitable. Not too much happens here.
My experiences in Dora were and still are very good, but yes like any others place it has its ups and downs. In Dora we have food, markets, and homes. Some of the places in Dora are nice and some are not, but that's okay because no one place is perfect. Dora is a small average comfy place to be, and not a lot goes on around here, but when something does happen you'll be sure to here about it very soon. Dora a place where country living and city living meet.
