One of the most well-known real estate brokerage firms, Movoto, has recently ranked the Birmingham/Hoover area of Alabama as one of the state’s best places to live. Aside from the fact that you get to live in Alabama and benefit from all of its features, those who live in the Birmingham/Hoover region can get a double dose of good living while there.

While Alabama in general, has been described as the “Gem of the South” there is a quaint little charm that reflects the true quality of the life in the region. Those that live in the double city have enjoyed many amenities during their time there. As one resident tells us,

“The bright lights of Birmingham’s nighttime city scape, will allow us to parteee’ at fun locations as the streets fill with people from all around the world. Birmingham, Alabama offers its visitors antebellum history tours, motorsports parks, museums, zoos, outdoor theatres, river boat tours, theme parks, and much more for family fun and eclectic tastes.”

Many people have visited the city and loved it so much that they have decided to return to stay permanently. Your decision to relocate to Birmingham could very well be a good one as it can not only offer you a simpler life but one full of possibilities.


In a world where the youth have lost their touch with respect and honor for the people around them, you will still find a semblance of that southern charm around the youth of the state. You will stand a foot taller after you hear the cherished words of respect that fall simply from their mouth no matter where you are from. This is one of the reasons why Movoto chose the area is one of the Best Places to Live. Consider their comments at,

“If you’re born and raised in Alabama, you answer an adult’s query with a “sir or ma’am” after your “yes” or “no”. It has nothing to do with race, class, or creed. It’s a matter of respecting your elders and Southern hospitality, which still exists in spades.”

They Have Beaches too

Keep in mind that the east and west coast are not the only places where you can find beaches in the country. Birmingham/Hoover are known for those silky, white sandy beaches of the Gulf. They not only have great beaches that allow you to get in the water but they are also places where you can get in a lot of water fun in all sorts of ways.

The Hot Spot

Yes, the cities get a rise in temperature come the summer months but that’s not the only thing that gets hot in Birmingham and Hoover. As a matter of fact, the city’s newly revitalized downtown area and the new park system has attracted many people from all over the world. Not only is the new look of the city bringing in people who are looking for more than the basics, they are also attracting a wide range of businesses to the area as well. As they reported in,

“It is not just real estate developers, loft dwellers and baseball park visitors interested in what’s happening in downtown Birmingham these days. … The momentum downtown is palpable. … You have all the pieces in place for it to be really hot for the next 10 years.”

The city’s urban renewal campaign has focused on not just restoring old buildings and giving them life again but in attracting new businesses as well as new residents. This will ensure that jobs are plentiful, the economy is strong, and life is good for all of its residents.

With all the incentives in place for a whole new era in the Birmingham/Hoover area, there is no time like the present to consider setting up a new life in Alabama. Where else will you find favorable climates, a plethora of activities, a strong economy, and great employment opportunities all wrapped up in some good old fashioned Southern hospitality to make your new home the perfect place to settle in and raise a family, start a business, or just kick back and enjoy the perks that they have to offer.
