Alabama

Look no further, outdoor enthusiasts, we’ve found your new home. Beautiful Alabama, with its year-round warm temperatures and white sandy beaches, has everything you need to live the good life.

Lace up your hiking boots or get ready to yell “Fore!” because the Yellowhammer State (fun fact: it’s named after the state bird) boasts four national forests, part of the 440-mile Natchez Trace Parkway, a historic forest trail and a number of prestigious golf courses, like the Judge, Legislator and Senator courses. Plus, the state is home to several artesian wells, or aquifers whose crystal-clear water flows upward and doesn’t require pumping.

Looking for a rewarding career? You’ve come to the right place. Alabama is known for its strong agriculture, aerospace, automotive, finance, health care, manufacturing and mining sectors. And we can’t forget about its top higher education institutions, like Auburn, Troy and Tuskegee universities and the University of Alabama — Roll Tide!
