Huntsville, AL Does It Again! Another Top 10 Winner!

Huntsville, Alabama does it again. This is the place I have called home for 12 1/2 years. I have gone from being the "Yankee" (growing up in Cleveland Heights, Ohio), to just being one of the MANY people who have moved here from all over the County and LOVE it. Most of my friends and people whom I have helped purchase or sell a home were not born here. So why do so many people come to Huntsville to make it their place to call home? Simple~it is an awesome place to live and raise a family.

I read on Yahoo today that Huntsville, Alabama is #3 in the Kiplinger's "10 Great Cities For Raising Families" (you can read more here).

I have taken just a portion of what was said so you could see the stats they show:

"If you're after affordability, Huntsville is worth a look: Home prices are 20% below the national average, and the city's cost of living is 10% below the national norm for medium and large cities. Huntsville also offers solid public schools, several thousand acres of woodlands and natural parks and the South's largest children's museum. Consider neighborhoods in the Madison County School District -- its test scores are considerably higher."

"PROS: Extremely affordable housing, low cost of living, solid public schools, traffic-less commutes, strong wage and employment growth, promising opportunities in aerospace and military tech."

Diane - I can understand your appreciation for Huntsville, it's a great southern city. The migration south has not stopped, and unless the political winds change, I think it will actully sped up as businesses continue to move to places where the unions don't control the companies and the government.

Hi Diane--as much as I love San Diego it is the polar opposite of Huntsville!  How funny!  All the wonderful things you have there are our weaknesses here!  Next time I'm sitting in ridiculous traffic I'll think, "Geez I should head to Huntsville".

I like Huntsville.  I'm only about an hour and 15 minutes away in middle TN.  I get to Huntsville at least 3 times a year.
