Life in the Yellowhammer State!
The great state of Alabama is one of the best places to call home. Tons of interesting history, great places to eat, and eye catching entertainment lie within these state lines that make us proud to be from Alabama. The Yellowhammer State is beautiful and we may be bias, but we think it is one of the best places to call home!
Alabama boasts many delicious restaurants, bistros, cafes and eateries! If you are in the mood for a delicious southern barbeque, try Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q in Decatur. Their menu has a wide variety of barbequed favorites–you won’t know where to begin! Oh la la! In the mood for some fantastic French cuisine? Luckily, we have an amazing French restaurant right in Birmingham. Highlands Bar & Grill’s signature French dishes are to die for! If you are not sure what you want, head to the capital, Montgomery, for a more sophisticated meal at Central— menu full of many types of food to choose from!
We are neighbors with many states but one of our most popular borders is Florabama! Florabama is where Orange Beach, Alabama and Perdido Key, Florida come together to create an unforgettable vacation destination. Here you can find beautiful beaches, 5 stages for live entertainment featuring different genres of music, delicious restaurants and more await you at Florabama! Our luxury community, PROSPER Orange Beach, is located about 20 minutes away from the Florabama adventures!
Speaking of neighbors, Alabama is full of fun places to see! Columbus, Georgia is just a quick 5 minute drive from Phenix City. An interesting sight to see is the USS Alabama Battleship–a ship used in World War II which holds a lot of history that we are proud of! The Moody Air Force Base is another military staple about a quick 3 hour drive from our LIVE Garrett Woods community . If you are interested in joining the Air Force, check out the official Moody Air Force base website for more information about the establishment, history, and how to join. Seale, Alabama is full of interesting museums including The Drive-Thru Museum. That’s right, you have the chance to drive thru this museum and see the art created and collected by the owner, Anthony. Being that we are located in the south, it gets hot…really hot. Alabama Splash Adventure, a water park located in Bessemer, is the perfect place to cool off and have a fun time doing so with the many slides and water activities there! These are just some of the fun places to go in Alabama!
If you are a student at Columbus State University, Columbia Southern University, or any other college or university in the areas surrounding our communities, you’re in luck! Our communities are the ideal place for college students, like you, to call home!
Overall, Alabama is not just a state. It is a vacation destination, an educational journey, a historical landmark, and a home.
