Alabama Quality of Life

Sweet Home Alabama.

Warm summers on the Gulf Coast and crisp mornings on the golf course may seem like a far-away luxury, but they are just a part of life in Alabama.

Offering the perfect combination of leisure and convenience, living here can feel more like vacation than everyday life. Feeling adventurous? Go on a morning hike, then end the day at an award-winning restaurant, all without venturing too far from home.

Nationally-renowned health centers and doctors, sprawling universities, and an affordable housing market are just the icing on the red velvet cake. There’s a reason why Alabama hospitality is legendary and our quality of life cannot be beaten. Come find out for yourself.

Alabama’s Offerings

Pristine Beaches

Alabama lays claim to just 53 miles of coastline, but we certainly make the most of them. Families come from all over the world to spend their vacations on our white, sugar-sand beaches, and we keep them coming back year after year with tons of outdoor activities, great shopping, delicious seafood, and sunsets that you’ll want to write home about.

Championship Golf

Thanks to mild winters and long summers, Alabama is a year-round destination for golfers of every skill level. We boast acres and acres of verdant beauty and challenging courses, including the internationally renowned Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, which features 468 holes of premier golf across 11 sites.

Famous Food

Folks across the world know Alabama for our down-home Southern recipes, but our legendary barbeque and unbeatable soul food are just the beginning. We’re home to multiple James Beard Award-winning chefs and restaurants as well as the freshest local seafood on the Gulf Coast; it’s no surprise, then, that Zagat’s Restaurant Guide recently named Birmingham one of the country’s up-and-coming foodie destinations.

Outdoor Adventure

With mountains to the north, beaches to the south, and millions of acres of forest and waterways in between, Alabama is a virtual playground for outdoorsmen. If you’re into fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, boating, birding, and rafting—or you’re just looking to reconnect with nature for a moment—you’ll find it all here.
