I have lived in Montgomery for most of my life, and it’s simple to say that the city is full of so much history. The Civil Rights Movement took place here and many historical figures such as Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks have set foot in the city. The downtown area is the scene where anyone and everyone will be for a good time and a night on the town! Although, at times the crime rate here seems back to back, it doesn’t distract from the beauty of this city. There is nothing more wonderful than living in a historic city located in the South!
Love Montgomery! Although I've lived in several other cities in the US, I'm a Montgomery native and came back home for a reason. Downtown is experiencing a huge revitalization that is now spreading to Five Points/Cottage Hill and Cap Heights. For the naysayers who claim there's nothing to do, several new businesses -- including an escape game/virtual reality destination -- have opened. However, I wonder whether the naysayers actually visit and support these new businesses. Transplants and young professionals have introduced new events and festivals, including the state's first taco festival, Taco Libre (Birmingham now copied).
Comfortable, quiet, friendly, convenient to shopping and parks. Public schools could be better. Far enough from the Coast to not get pounded by hurricanes at full-strength!! Not as likely as other places in Alabama (or in neighbouring MS!) to get a barrage of tornadoes. Plenty of historical venues here, and restaurants are abundant and of good quality. We moved from South Florida, and find the area quite palatable. In the 70s I lived in Decatur, Hoover, and Mobile, and enjoyed those areas as well. Coming back after so many years was welcome, as South Florida is a zoo!
