I've lived in Huntsville for 13 years, I've seen it grow for over a decade into a large, almost metropolis type area. This is a great place for engineering, computer science, and various other technical type jobs due to attractions and various companies. The economy and population is booming. It's a pretty diverse place and not like most other areas in the South.

There's such a wide variety of restaurants, stores, and places to be! Bridge Street, Providence, and anywhere along Highway 72 from Madison to Huntsville has a plethora of stuff to do and diverse places to eat. Sometimes it's choose just once place to go out.

Huntsville is a much safer place than many other cities I can list and is full of opportunity. Definitely family friendly and has a low cost of living.

I do wish there weren't such a dense population sometimes, it's a very busy area. Sometimes I'd like to see more metropolitan works come up, and see how much the community and city as a whole can grow further.

I enjoy Huntsville! The Parkway system seems to be really ingenious for the flow of the city. There are so many activities to do for all variations of interests. Whether it's walking in the park, hiking the mountain trails, learning at the space centers, visiting the art museum, experiencing the arts and entertainment at Lowe Mill, or enjoying the vibrant night life. The only negative thing I can say about Huntsville is how unfortunate it is that there aren't more large bodies of water available to the public for swimming and water activities.
Huntsville is bringing more jobs to the town. Improving the downtown area to bring in more businesses. The communities are family friendly and there is always something to do. They have outdoor shopping and many amusements to entertain us. The school’s systems are good and steadily improving. Transportation is easy to find, and very convenient. Have something for everyone to do. Colleges are top rated and forever expanding and improving housing for students. Many businesses to help students after graduating from school. Outdoor programs for the kids to have fun during school’s session. Health wise school lunch purchases. Huntsville has a lot to offer visitors and people that are already dwelling here.
