I grew up in Theodore. I moved away several different times, but have always moved back. The public school system is about the same as anywhere around Mobile. There are a lot of fast food restaurants here and a few sit down restaurants, but for the most part they are good. Everyone seems to know everyone, although they really don't. People are just that friendly here.

The region of Theodore, AL is located just passed Tillman's Corner. The highlight of Theodore is that its provides residents with various of different restaurant. A positive aspect of Theodore is that it offers more than one straight way to popular places like the grocery stores, movie theater, and other parts of Alabama. A negative aspect of Theodore it is not pedestrian friendly and limited street lights.
Great schools here for all students from pre-k to Universities. Perfect place to go to the beaches, have fun at the parks, and great restaurants to eat at when you are hungry.
