I have lived in the city of Hartselle, AL. the southern hospitality everywhere is a great experience. There is little crime here, which is great if you are looking to start a family or being in a safe environment. The nightlife could be improved quite a bit. This is a dry city which means there are no bars or restaurants that serve alcohol.
If you are looking for fun, there isn’t a lot to do besides a bowling alley and a few restaurants. In a few years, this town can be great. Currently, there are sociable people, most areas are great to live in as well as some schools are the best in this town. Job opportunities could be a bit better. For a small town, that is one improvement that you wouldn’t think is a request, but it is. The best areas in Hartselle are on Hwy 36 where there are plenty of shopping areas and Hwy 31 where you can find dining areas.
