Ozark, Alabama is a very well-developed, civil, small town which would be perfect for small families and animals depending on where you live. However, there are certain spots in the town which are no-go’s if you are looking for civility. This town has everything you need from the small gas station on the corner, to a Walmart where you can gather all your needs. The town is about 120 miles from our capital, Montgomery, and 20 minutes from a bigger town with a Sam’s Club and a mall, Dothan.

Ozark is up & coming slowly but surely! Small town conveniently located a few minutes from larger town shopping & dining without having to deal with the traffic at home. Even better is the short drive to the beach! There is nothing sweeter than small town family activities like soccer, baseball, football, cheer! We also love walking with the kids to the local high school football games!
Ozark is a dumpy little town in southeast Alabama with an overall attitude against progress. There is a huge percentage of the population of elderly, retired people who do not want things to change and it reflects in at the voting booths and certainly in the elected officials who know what side their bread is buttered. There is an over abundance of fast food places as well as section 8 housing, low income everything, and dollar stores. There is little to nothing in the way of entertainment and other things to do. The roads remain in disrepair and trash and litter is the city’s official decoration. The place is completely void of culture and ambition. Jobs generally range from poor to you-should-look-elsewhere. Any dreams anybody may want to pursue can be easily found and wished for via the internet, but not in Ozark, unless your dream is to remain stagnant and sedentary for the remainder of your lifeless existence.

However, the people are generally polite.
