Here Are 13 Reasons Why People Are Picking Up And Moving To Alabama
Alabama is the perfect place to call home. Because of its great history, beautiful scenery and friendly people, it’s easy to understand why it’s such a great place to live. Every year, more and more people are choosing to move to Alabama, and here are 13 reasons why.
1.) Compared to many other states, Alabama has a low cost of living.
2.) People will wave to you, shake your hand, and ask how you're doing - even if they don't already know you. Southern hospitality at its finest!
3.) As stated in Kiplinger's 2014 "10 Most Tax-Friendly States" list, Alabama residents pay very low taxes. As a matter of fact, Alabama has the fifth lowest taxes in the U.S., and this statistic includes a combination of property taxes, gas taxes and state income taxes.
4.) We have a very laid-back way of life here in Alabama.
5.) Because Alabama is located within the Bible Belt, there are many different options for religious-minded people.
6.) Alabama offers the perfect balance of country living...
...and city living.

8.) Alabama is home to gorgeous beaches...
...and beautiful scenic mountains.
9.) We have festivals throughout the state that celebrate just about anything, such as boll weevils, possums, peanuts and grease - and I'm not talking about the country!
10.) Alabama provides many incentives for big companies to manufacture here.
11.) Alabama is rich in music diversity and history.
12.) In Alabama, football fans won't have any problem fitting in. Even though we don't have a professional football team here in Alabama, we're huge supporters of our high school football teams...
...and our college football teams.
13.) Our winters are much milder compared to the Northern states.
