Enterprise is a small town with not much culture and not much to do. The people are generally limited in their world perception and don't seem to be highly educated. They call themselves the city of progress but the state of Alabama is anything but progressive. When gay marriage became legal Enterprise decided to not participate in marriages at all so they would not have to marry same sex couples.
Every time they build something new they knock down every tree and leave nothing for aesthetic, or more importantly the wild life. This town wouldn't exist if not for the military base. At least it's cheap living and only a couple hours from the beach.

Friendly enough town, however, the locals are very cliquish. If you don’t know someone, you won’t get very far with government jobs or in the school circles. The Highschool prizes football above everything else (though when confronted on this they will deny it). Housing is less expensive than many other places, however, the builders have a racket going where they have all agreed to sell houses at not less than a pre determined price per square footage. In other words, price fixing. Not much of a selection of stores or restaurants (everything seems to be a chicken restaurant) of quality in this town. They don’t even have a shopping mall. The locals think they live in the best of the best, because they don’t get out much. I’ve traveled all over the world and have seen much. This town is ok, but I’ve lived in many better places.
Enterprise is fairly small which makes commutes pretty short; however, there isn't much in the form of entertainment around the town beside a movie theater, a miniature golf course, and the local parks. I wish that more businesses and restaurants were built to help liven up the shopping, entertainment, and eating experience around town.
