      One of the best experiences I have had while living in Gardendale was the amazing amount of opportunities and friends made in just these past couple years. It wasn't hard to find work shortly after settling down, even though I had just recently graduated with my Bachelors. I had a pretty easy time finding my apartment too, only after a couple months of searching dozens of ideal spots.

      Me and my friends have had a lot of good times enjoying the city itself as well. There's just so much to do in terms of having fun. Top Golf has become a standard Friday night plan that I personally look forward to every day during the week. If we're not missing every shot at the driving range, then we can usually be found grabbing a bite to eat. With some of the best restaurants in Gardendale on just about every block, it's any wonder how I can still fit into my jeans.

      The hot weather can be a little overbearing at times though, especially during the summer. Temperatures can hit 80 on average with it hardly ever raining. Knowing the neighborhoods in a must! Some parts of Atlanta can be a little sketchy, so it's important to get around and explore.
