5 comments on “Montgomery”

If you are considering moving to Montgomery, I would like to warn you about a few things. For the majority of the year, the heat is unbearable. You will sweat through your clothes every day. You should also know that the people there are not always kind. While the immediate hospitality will feel nice, backhanded compliments are common.

Montgomery, Alabama, played a major part in the civil rights movement in America. Many citizens of Montgomery are proud to be from this city and are doing whatever they can within their sphere of influence to improve upon it. In recent years, the downtown of Montgomery has been undergoing renovation as a sort of repentance, with the hope of creating a family-friendly environment where a slave auction once stood.

Montgomery, AL is known for the birth of the Civil Rights Movement. It is a growing city that still feels like a small town. The downtown has several popular restaurants and is just a quick walk to the riverfront. In the evening the riverfront is a beautiful place to watch the sunset.

Montgomery is the capital of Alabama and is steeped in history. It has a thriving restaurant scene along with one of the finest museums of art in the South. You’re mere hours from Atlanta and all it has to offer and being a couple of hours from the Gulf of Mexico.

Montgomery has an Air Force war college on Maxwell Air Force base. Vaughn Road is one of the most travelled roads, and it stretches from Pike Road to Old Cloverdale. Montgomery is also the capital of Alabama and had many government buildings in the downtown. There are many private schools as well.
