Bay Minette, Al is a small town on the way to the Beaches. Within the town and surrounding rural area the population is aroud 4-5000 individuals with many looking to move away as soon as possible. Restaurants are majorly lacking in the Bay Minette area, I can not name a single healthy choice option for fast food or dine in. Other improvements include more recreational physical activity for adults ( i.e adult kickball, wiffle ball, bowling league, flag football, .etc.) For youths up to the age 15/16 there are many opportunities for team sports, but there needs to be improvement in teaching of lifelong sports (i.e golf, tennis, cycling, etc.) The school systems can be improved if we elevated and stop regressing in requirements needed to graduate, or even strengthening the course curriculum to make more college/job ready youths who understand the various dynamics of todays society.

Being close to the school and church attend is a plus to living where I do. However, there is hardly anything to do for recreational purposes and not many nice restaurants to eat at. Another downside to living here is that it can get extremely hot. The heat index hear generally adds an additional 10 to 15 degrees to the temperature.
