Benefits of Living in Alabama

Leaving New York is a tough decision, but making a move down south carries a lot of benefits. Your move to Alabama may give you a bit of a culture shock, so it might help a bit to learn the lingo. When people ask "who are you for," you're expected to respond with "Alabama" or "Auburn." (Roll Tide or War Eagle are acceptable, too.) If you're getting ready to do something, you're "fittinto," you always "cut on" the lights, and when you "run to the Pig" (grocery store) you push a "buggy" (cart) and stow your groceries in a "sack" (plastic bag). Also, be aware that if someone says "bless your heart," it's probably meant as an insult.

If you're leaving New York to escape the hustle and bustle, Alabama is the place for you. Life is much more laid back, with friendly faces and helping hands everywhere you look. Be sure not to fall victim to the stereotypes: Alabama is home to some of the most well-educated professionals in the country (Huntsville is known as Rocket City, after all, and has one of the world's most well-educated populations).

Discover Alabama's Rich History

As the birthplace of the Confederacy leading up to the Civil War, Alabama’s racially divisive past is well known. But the state is also the site of some key events in the Civil Rights Movement, where Martin Luther King, Jr. preached, where Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat, and where thousands of peaceful protestors marched across the Edmund Pettis Bridge. The rich history of Alabama has paved the way for a modern-day culture eager to share the hard-won lessons of the last century.

Enjoy Alabama's Low Cost of Living

Alabama’s low cost of living will allow you much more for your money than what you could get in New York, with the second-lowest property taxes in the United States and a housing market that is incredibly affordable. The housing market is ranked third in the nation for low home prices, with a median home value of $134,300. The rental market is also attractive, ranking fourth in the U.S. for inexpensive rent.

Alabama Has Strong Economic Growth

Alabama has built a strong economic foundation over the last few years, with high-caliber projects continuing to bring new jobs and investment to the state. Trends that are fueling Alabama’s economic growth include a current hiring wave in a number of areas, growth of the automotive industry, significant projects in the distribution and logistics sector, prioritizing recruitment in high-tech jobs, and notable growth potential and investment in the state’s rural communities. All of these components combine to increase the attractiveness of Alabama to employers and continue to fuel the state’s growth in population and industry.

You'll Love the Amazing Food

Bring your appetite! Alabama restaurants serve up slow-cooked Southern delicacies, elegant fine-dining courses, and the freshest seafood around. You’ll find locally-sourced meat-and-threes dishing out yumminess in large quantities. Be sure to try the fried catfish, fried green tomatoes and, of course, grits, which are practically a food group. Alabama also claims to be THE authority on authentic barbecue. Check out the Alabama Barbecue Hall of Fame if you need convincing. Of course you’ll need a sweet tea to wash it all down, and order up some banana pudding for dessert. You’re welcome.

Explore Family-friendly Attractions

The Cotton State is home to some well-known, family-friendly tourist attractions. The U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville houses a huge collection of rockets and space memorabilia. The highly interactive GulfQuest National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico in Mobile is the only maritime museum in the world that focuses on the significance of the Gulf of Mexico. In Birmingham, the Civil Rights Institute promotes the history of the Civil Rights Movement. The state’s oldest and largest wildlife rehabilitation center is not to be missed, with its 2,000 wild birds representing over 100 different species.

Get Caught Up In Competitive Sports

Football is king in the Yellowhammer State. From Friday night lights at local high school stadiums to Saturdays at Auburn and the 18-time national championship-winning Alabama, you will find the stands full of fans. Other sports have also gained a following, including the wildly popular Talladega auto racing. Minor league baseball teams in Birmingham, Montgomery, and Mobile also draw some crowds, and the Huntsville Havoc hockey team shows that even Southerners can appreciate the ice.

Enjoy the Mild Winters

Moving to Alabama, you won’t have to sacrifice experiencing all four seasons, but you will likely not need your sleds or snow blowers. The state experiences cold weather in winters, but snow is rare. Be prepared for humidity, however…with average July and August temperatures over 90 degrees, the summer months can be hot, sticky and brutal. Depending on where you choose to live within the state, you may also be at increased risk for potentially damaging natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding and thunderstorms.

Lose Yourself on Alabama's Beautiful Beaches

We can’t forget one of the state’s best features: proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. From Orange Beach to Gulf Shores, people flock to the emerald green waters and white sand beaches. Regardless of where you live in the state, you won’t be far from the beauty and relaxation of the ocean.
