      Sorry, but I can't in good conscience recommend Center Point as a good place to live. Just about the only thing really enjoyable about living in Center Point is the nice weather year round. It is part of the Birmingham metro area, so there's that if you're looking for entertainment or nightlife. The homes here are older and not very well maintained for the most part. And don't even get me started on the schools. The drop out rate is through the roof and the graduation rate is in the other direction.

      As I said, Birmingham provides some things to do since it is a pretty great place itself. One of the best areas is in Birmingham where you can experience the Birmingham History Tours and Ghost Walks. That's my personal favorite. It never gets old hearing about the rich history of the place and actually seeing the haunted sites around the city. The Birmingham Zoo is awesome too. Sadly though, all in all, Center Point AL is just not the greatest place to live.
