Have you ever wondered whether or not you belong in Alabama? We’ve all done it at least once in our lives. Sometimes we feel like uprooting and relocating to a neighboring state. Or even relocating to the opposite side of the U.S. If you can relate to any of the 12 signs listed below, you DEFINITELY belong in Alabama.
1.) You enjoy the outdoors, whether it be on LAND...
There are many different places throughout Alabama to go hunting.
Alabama offers an endless amount of hiking trails.
2.) or WATER.
Some of the most beautiful lakes and rivers are located in Alabama.
Alabama is home to some of the most beautiful white-sand beaches EVER!
3.) You love to EAT!
Alabamians love to EAT! Of course, most of the food is quite unhealthy such as fried foods and baked sweets. We LOVE our fried chicken and pecan pie!
4.) You believe KINDNESS goes a long way.
In Alabama, people will go out of their way to be kind. Every now and then you'll come across someone who's not very kind, but for the most part you'll see many smiling faces and neighbors helping one another in Alabama.

Alabama summers can get quite toasty.
8.) but the winter weather, not so much.
Alabama isn't as prepared for snow as states up north, so many people tend to "freak out" whenever snow is on the way - even if it's a slight dusting.
9.) You like getting more for your money.
Because Alabama has a low cost of living, a house may cost half of what it would cost somewhere else.
10.) You're a NASCAR fan.
NASCAR fans flock to Talladega each year to watch the races. Talladega hosts the Sprint Cup Series, XFINITY Series and Camping World Truck Series. It's also NASCAR's longest oval track, measuring 2.66 miles.
11.) Family is VERY important to you!
You may have many people in your life, but you won’t find a single person who cares more about you than your family. Family is EVERYTHING!
12.) You enjoy small-town living.
