Montgomery Reviews

285 reviews
All Categories
Montgomery is a diverse area, located in Central Alabama, convenient to Birmingham, Atlanta and the Florida coast. Montgomery has a little of everything for everyone! Foodies will find plenty of excellent dining choices, and those interested in the Arts will love the Shakespeare Festival. The Zoo rivals most of those in larger metropolitan areas, and it is convenient to music and entertainment provided by some of the larger cities in the South.
Review Montgomery
Montgomery, AL is a city that is full of opportunity. I was born and raised in Montgomery and now I work in Montgomery. I have traveled to many cities all across the U.S., but Montgomery feels like home. The diversity in this city adds to the atmosphere, especially in the college atmosphere. There is so much that can be learned from the various cultures and backgrounds of the students, faculty, and staff of the college. The cost of living is not too high and the public school system seems to work very hard at educating the young while instilling ideals such as respect and unity in the classrooms. The Shoppes at East Chase are always a blast to spend to time in and there are so many restaurant options in this one part of Montgomery alone. There are many events taking place every month at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Shakespeare Festival, Biscuits' Stadium, Crampton Bowl, and Downtown Area.
I've live in my neighborhood Georgetown for over ten years. I can honestly say that this neighborhood is probably one of the best that I've live in. The neighbors are nice, there's a strong sense of community, and its peaceful. In the evening time, most kids would play outside in the front yard with the other kids, so no child is left behind. There's a fantastic view of the stars at night despite living in the city. Its close to several restaurants and food places, so it's lively. If you don't mind children, then Georgetown would be a great neighborhood to live in!
