Talladega, Alabama is known for many things that I know most of you have heard about. If you are someone who loves spending time with your family and know how to make fun happen. Then Talladega is the place for you. We have many great stores, parks, and schools. But there are little activities for the children to do. They find ways throughout the year to get the kids involved such as parades, carnivals, firework shows, and Winterland for christmas. It is a great city and everyone is friendly, safe, and family orientated.

It's a pretty little place but nothing really there to do. I'm always hearing about crimes that took place, however, there are good people in Talladega and they are working to improve the situation.
I have lived here almost my whole life, I have gone to school here from birth to present. Talladega is a good place, Race Weekend is awful to be a resident when you have everyone from the Track coming through to buy beer, but other than that it is decent. Not much to do for kids and teens but it is slowly bringing in business which is something 'Dega' has been needing for years.
