Worst Place I Have Ever Lived
The summers are so hot and humid you can't even walk out your front door without being sopping wet with sweat. It is like the reverse of the movie The Shining. Instead of being snowed in you are stuck inside because the heat indexes are over 100 degrees.
The restaurants are pretty much all chains that can be found anywhere. The neighborhood streets are laid on on a grid, so there is a LOT of traffic on residential streets. And the people driving through the residential areas seem to like to see how fast they can go while making as much noise as they can between the neighborhood stop signs. The neighborhood traffic is like that at all hours, even the middle of the night. If you enjoy sweating like a pig, eating bad food , and your fondest wish was to have a home on the infield of the Talladega Race Track, this is the place for you.

Foley is the American Riviera
I've been living in Foley Alabama for 3 years and have enjoyed the small-town atmosphere and the nice friendly neighbors and shops throughout the city. The school system in Foley is not the best but my kids love their friendly classmates, and they are enjoying the school system as a whole. There is very little crime in Foley but there are spurts of normal activity like normal domestic occurrences here and there.
The best areas in Foley, Alabama are around the City of Foley Antique Rose Trail. There are great houses and community developments around the Foley Antique Rose Trail where there is like hundreds of rose gardens that provide a unique and pleasant aroma during harvest time for the roses. There are lots of shops, restaurants, and places to purchase all of the items that you need to live comfortably in this small city. If you're looking to relocate to Foley, Alabama, I recommend it for those individuals looking for a small close-knit community to call home.
