I've live in my neighborhood Georgetown for over ten years. I can honestly say that this neighborhood is probably one of the best that I've live in. The neighbors are nice, there's a strong sense of community, and its peaceful. In the evening time, most kids would play outside in the front yard with the other kids, so no child is left behind. There's a fantastic view of the stars at night despite living in the city. Its close to several restaurants and food places, so it's lively. If you don't mind children, then Georgetown would be a great neighborhood to live in!

The city of Montgomery has a lot to offer anyone seeking a home that will have a great school system, various job opportunities and a history that is known all across the nation. This family friendly town is known for its events that cater to families. Bama Jam, state fair, Montgomery Biscuits games or cruising down the Alabama River on the Harriott II are just a few fun-filled activities that Montgomery has to offer. There is something for everyone to enjoy in the city of Montgomery. Once you visit, you will want to come back.

The overrall experience of the area I stay in is a great environment. Everyone seems to get along with one another and the kids love interacting with each other. It's close to a elementary school which makes it safe for the younger children to get home or for their parents to quickly pick them up after school or if there is a emergency. I love the environment because it is very quiet. In the future, I see my neighborhood progressing towards excellence. I also see my neighborhood becoming better than it is now. I see my neighborhood imspiring other neighborhoods to be the best that they could be.
