Things You Should Know About Alabama

If you want to move to Alabama, there are a few things you should know so you can be confident in your final decision. As a state with a total population of about 5 million people, it is clear that many people are proud to call Alabama home. So what should you know about Alabama before making the choice to move there?

Known as “The Heart of Dixie”, Alabama is located in the deep south and enjoys warm temperatures year-round. As a land with mountains, wetlands, beaches, and forests all in one state, there’s something to attract nearly everyone to the state. In fact, when you live in Alabama you are just a day-trip away from nearly any type of wilderness that you want to explore! This makes Alabama an outdoor lover’s dream.

Another great reason to call Alabama home is found in the low cost of living. The cost of living in Alabama is much lower than the national average with great deals on homes in the city and urban areas. Many real estate owners have even realized the benefits of renovating older-style homes and buildings into the perfect place to call home. Alabama is a land where you can take a 1800-style brick house and renovate the inside to fit your tastes perfectly- all for a very low cost.

Finally, another wonderful reason to move to Alabama is found in the job market. As a state with deep ties to the manufacturing industry in particular, Alabama always has openings in this industry in particular. As a mostly Republican state, Alabama hosts campaign promises that mostly discuss lost manufacturing jobs in the Rust Belt. With major manufacturing returning to the United States, it’s likely that there will be continuous job growth in Alabama mainly in the manufacturing sector, making job stability strong here.

Popular Towns to Visit in Alabama

So what are some of the most popular towns to visit in Alabama? Among the most popular are Birmingham and Montgomery and each of these towns are great places to call home. Let’s start with Birmingham.

Birmingham has been named one of the most livable cities in the country and is one of the most affordable cities in the South. Known for its legendary influence on jazz music, Birmingham is one of the most popular towns in Alabama for music lovers. Best of all, a low cost of living in Birmingham combined with high salaries and low unemployment rates make it a great place to relocate to! Some of the most popular neighborhoods in Birmingham include Five Points South, Crestline, Glen Iris, and Crestwood North as well as Crestwood South.

Now, onto Montgomery. Known primarily for its great sense of community, Montgomery has a population of just over 200,000 people and residents praise the area for promoting a sense of southern hospitality and belonging. Montgomery is also known for its food with various dining choices to fit the tastes of any food connoisseur. While there are plenty of national chain restaurants to grab a bite to eat, the local offerings aren’t something to be missed whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Finally, Montgomery is the place to be for any history lover. From the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, Montgomery is a hotbed of history and you’ll enjoy visiting the various historic landmarks sprinkled throughout the area including the Civil Rights Memorial, Rosa Parks Museum, and the Alabama Department of Archives and History. The most popular neighborhoods in Montgomery include the Garden District, Cottage Hill, Old Cloverdale, and Capitol Heights.

I've had less-than-stellar inter-state moving experiences in the past, so I was a bit nervous about my move from Boston to the Midwest, but Poseidon was fantastic. Jann, from the office, helped me schedule everything very easily and was always incredibly responsive and kind.

Tl;dr - they lost/broke our belongings and charged us $800 for ONE WEEK of storage. As recurring Poseidon customers, we recently used Poseidon for our two-step move in Boston (from our old address, to a storage unit for one week, to our new address).

Ky & his crew were amazing. Punctual, careful, friendly, and they had moving down to a science. They made sure to take care of all my furniture, wrap everything that I had not wrapped yet myself, and even double wrap everything that I had already attempted myself. 10/10 and will use again!!!

Highly recommend Poseidon for moving and storage, especially as a college student. Both admin and the moving teams were friendly and professional. All my items were returned in perfect condition and the moves themselves were very quickly executed despite not having an elevator and the weather being very hot..

Great Moving Company! The company was very professional. They were good to communicate and remind me through email of the move date and the timeframe to expect their arrival. They were also very responsive and communicative on move in day as to when they were going to be there and when they were 20 minutes out.
