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.

I have lived here most of my life. I like the old looking scenes around the town, I would not really change anything in the town besides the houses in some areas and the rowdiness of the town. The public school are not that good and when the night time comes around bad things start happening. There is not alot of friendly people and there is not a lot of safety either. I'd recommend living somewhere else.
Talladega is a very nice small downtown area. I will always love Talladega it will always have a place in my heart. We are rising up and plenty of things are being added to the city as in restaurants, and much more.
