Huntsville Alabama... far from the Alabama stereotype and a wonderful place to live.
Huntsville Alabama is one of those places where no one really talks about but there are a ton of really wonderful things.
First and foremost educated people. Huntsville Alabama has 36% of adults have a bachelor's or advanced degree. With the national average 14% of adults having a 4 year degree or higher.
Along with education comes diversity and Huntsville Alabama is extremely ethnically diverse with a wide range of races and ancestries that call Huntsville Alabama home. Even more interesting is that more people in Huntsville work with computers and math than 95% of the places in the United States.
There is just enough of everything in Huntsville to keep the town interesting with no extreme following one way or another but a good solid balance of all the things that are important.
