Boaz is a rural city that is growing in population every year. Students who graduate from the local high school are exposed to a variety of educational experiences. BHS has its own culinary and medical departments and even an ATM machine inside the school. Overall, Boaz is a simple easy place to live without a lot of distractions. The people are generally nice but don't really socialize in large groups. It is a very Christian based atmosphere with a church on every corner.

Boaz is a quite peaceful town to live in and there is plenty of this to do for fun. My favorite restaurant is the Gridiron in the Old Tangier Outlet, its great food and you can always watch your sports games.

They are very friendly. There is a wide variety of stores and restaurants in my area, from mom-and-pop restaurants like The Lion's Den, to big companies like McDonald's.
