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.
Nice quiet suburban area. I can't believe this review has to be 100 characters long, so I'll try to keep this sentence as long as possible without sounding incredibly stupid.
