Vance Reviews

I have lived here in Vance, Al for more than 30 years now. It's a town where neighbors are friends. There are convenient stores, grocery stores,
and restaurants nearby within a 1-5 mile radius. You are convenient to both Tuscaloosa, Hoover, and Birmingham. Industry is growing leaps and bounds around us, which although I am all for growth, I do miss the country atmosphere (it's still there but not as vast as before). Great schools and beautiful landscapes.

I would like to see more stores pop up around here. Seems you have to drive a little ways to get food or groceries or whatever else you need. Overall, schools are good as well as neighborhoods, very peaceful and quiet.
There needs to be more implemented for the children to do. There also are no restaurants or stores nearby who deliver.
