Chelsea, Alabama - A Great Place to Call Home!

Chelsea, Alabama - a great place to call home! And why not? With beautiful scenery, a fantastic sense of community, awesome schools, a booming economy and terrific weather, of course this is a wonderful place to live! And did I mention that we were voted as the number one place to reside in the entire state of Alabama? Yes we are!

There is so much to do here, especially things that are family oriented. There are parks, trails to walk on, festivals highlighting seasons and holidays, crafts fairs, book fairs, the list goes on and on! We also have a very active community center for the seniors to participate and stay active which I love because my mom goes there a lot. If there was no community center I'm afraid she would just stay home all day watching television!

People are are so helpful, it really makes you feel like we are just one great big family helping each other. This really is a place where everyone knows everyone else!
