Gadsden Alabama: A Small And Natural Haven 3.5 rating By Anonymous ( Apr 26, 2018) I love Alabama! The sense of southern pride that I get from it really makes me happy and gives me a wince of belonging. I have lived in many cities around the state and have enjoyed many experiences there in. One of my favorites is Gadsden.
Gadsden may be small but the energy re
...Read More sonating off of this place is huge. It is the best place to look for southern and country foods. The barbeque and other southern staple foods here are excellent. They tend to give huge portions for smaller prices. I guess it’s just a southern thing and I love it.
The places to shop her provide the essentials to anyone in need. The city is situated on the river and the wildlife and nature here is breathtaking. Just going exploring or taking a trip to the river can provide memories and entertainment for a person. The city also has a few historical sights that are great to visit and learn history from. Overall this small city has a lot of heart and is a place to raise a family with love and a tight knit community. Read Less
