First, I have to say that I love the south period. I love Birmingham because of the woods with trails, the cultural centers such as the museum, botanical gardens and many other things. I also love being so close to the mountains and caves, not just in nearby states but here in Alabama as well. I love that we get cold weather but not always drastically sever. I love the rain ( i have lived temporarily in the west were rain was far and few between) and love the way the south smells when spring is in bloom-honeysuckles, magnolia, sweet bush......

Adventure isn't hanging on a rope off the side of a mountain. Adventure is an attitude that we must apply to the day to day obstacles of life--facing new challenges, seizing new opportunities, testing our resources against the unknown and our own unique potential.-----John Amatt

I love the hospitality. Just about everyone speaks to you in passing.

I live right on the edge of Birmingham, on the border of Tarrant. I LOVE that I am 3 minutes away from the grocery stores, Walmart, CVS, anytime I need something it's right down the road. But my nearest neighbor is well over a couple of blocks away! And it's not really blocks lol, but a long winding road. Nothing but woods in between. It's like having the best of both worlds. Living in the wide open country with the convenience of the city so close!

Thank you, sounds great. Keep 'em coming!

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And together we'll change the world. All my very best, Jack Layton.

Wow. I don't know that I can list it out.

I think the first thing would be just that I know the town. Not just where things are and street names, but I know how the town will react to something. I know if something will work and what won't. There's comfort in that familiarity.

I love the way the air smells like BBQ during the spring.

I love the way everyone freaks out when the weatherman says the word "snow".

I love how friendly everyone is.

I love the honeysuckle.

I love that we're four hours from the beach, and four hours from the mountains.

I love the music scene.

I love the food.

I could go on, but you get the idea.

Hello! I am not from Alabama, I am from Toronto but I am doing a school presentation about Alabama and I would really like to hear why you love it. Nothing is too weird, nothing is too boring, so don't be shy, go ahead and brag. emoticon

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And together we'll change the world. All my very best, Jack Layton.
