I have lived in Vestavia Hills for over 15 years. This is a wonderful community to raise children with the excellent school system, dedicated teachers, and parent investment into their children and the schools. My neighborhood is active with friendly people who take care of one another. We have a dedicated group of first responders who protect us and we support them. This is a wonderful place to live, work, and play.

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.
The absolute best place to live. Vestavia is a place I call home away from home. it has genuinely made me feel like everyone here is a family. You meet your neighbors, make friends, etc. Vestavia offers a wide variety of places to walk, run, hike, anything you would like. Vestavia also offers many places to eat with family and friends, fast food as well as sit down dinners.
