Alabama is known for its science innovations, automotive industry, rich culture, festivals, historical background, and hospitality-making it a great place to move into if you enjoy natural, historical scenery and lovely neighbors. If you plan to stay away from the hustle and bustle lifestyle and enjoy a little calmer and more natural environment, Alabama is an excellent choice for you.
