    Thank You! My former boyfriend and I used to hunt in Abbeville, and I fell in love with the area.

    Thanks again!

    i always say live fairly close to the things you need...work, gym, grocery stores etc.

    if you do not have kids and need a good school system, the crestline gardens/crestwood areas of town are a win win. great deals on homes, and low taxes (they are zoned city of birmingham) they are easily within 10-15 minutes of all the best hospitals...uab, trinity, brookwood, and st. vincents. also downtown birmingham and all the best shopping...the summit, the pinacle trussville, mountain brook village, crestline village, a new shopping center with old navy, wal-mart etc that is in walking distance. publix, brunos whole foods and some of the best gyms in birmingham. alot of singles professionals, young couples, uab med school residents, med students tend to live in this area. i loved living in crestline gardens.

    i know a fantastic real estate agent in birmingham if you need....

    Helena, Pell-City are nice but not close to the BEST hospitals...and not terribly convenient to downtown.

    Be very carefull with Chelsea. It is very nice and affordable but you must brave THE WORST traffic in my opinion in the south (barely 2nd to atlanta) to get there!! Highway 280!!! Not to mention it is not close to hospitals..just doctors offices

    Hi! I now live in Birmingham, but did live in the Dothan area for 2 years. Of the cities you listed, Dothan is by far the largest and would offer the most to do as well as the most job possiblities. There are 2 hospitals there--Flowers is the smaller one, and Southeast Alabama Medical Center (SAMC) is a large, regional medical center. I delivered my son at Flowers and was thrilled by the care I received. The staff was incredible! Let me know if you have any more questions, and good luck with your search!

    If you want a good school system, Shelby County is a good place to be. We all have to make sacrifices...might just have to deal with the traffic...

    You get used to the traffic!!!! Even if you might still fuss about it!

    No ones mentioned it yet, but I live in Huntsville, it was recently on the list for one of the greatest cities to raise a family. I've lived here all my life, and absolutely LOVE it. Take a look at www.huntsvillehospital.org that is my workplace, HUGE hospital, and has one of the top NICU's in alabama, among other things. Beautiful city, lots to do.

    I grew up in Auburn and it is a great place to live. It is growing rapidly, it has a great school system and the crime rate is low. My sister is a nurse manager at EAMC and loves it. It is close to Atlanta and Birmingham (both 2 hours away) and 30 minutes from Montgomery and Columbus, GA. I am in Las Vegas right now going to RN school, but I can't wait to move back when I'm finished.

    I live about 60 miles from Dothan, and the job opportunities are endless for nurses in Dothan, as a previous post said there are 2 Hospitals Flowers and South East Alabama Medical Center, Working as a paramedic for the last 11 years I have transfered many, many, patients to both and both are great facilities. If you are intrested there are also several home health and hospice agencies looking for nurses as well, the job market is pretty much endless around here. I am a new Grad and I have had many offers just not sure what to do yet, most places will train they are that short on staff. Hope this helps.
