It's my hometown! I love it because there is a small-town atmosphere but it's also close to a larger city with plenty of good music, sports and entertainment.

I have lived in Vestavia Hills since I was a kid, and I wouldn't have it any other way! Vestavia is a great city that is full of a large variety of shops and restaurants, and there is always something for the kids to do. Also, Vestavia police are extremely kind while still knowing how to enforce the rules, and the school systems couldn't be better!
No diversity (white flight suburb). The school's academics are amazing but there's no diversity, but many of the teachers are woke.
