Neighbors are extremely friendly and the neighborhoods are nice! The elementary school is amazing, but the middle and high schools are not. Wish there was more development, but it's getting there.

Both Birmingham and Tuscaloosa have a variety of small, family-owned restaurants and stores. The quality of the food and items are usually pretty good, considering that the owners rely on happy customers to keep up shop.
Between bars in Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, and Hoover you can't go wrong. There is always something to do or somewhere to go. A local eatery in Birmingham that is popular amongst college students is Al's Restaurant.
