I've been living in Hueytown Alabama for 8 years and enjoyed the small town feel and the convenience to neighboring Birmingham where there's lots of Metropolitan nightlife, restaurants in various other opportunities to enjoy a larger city as well. In Hueytown, all of the neighbors know each other and have developed a strong community in these suburban areas. The crime in Hueytown is very low and the school system's here are extremely good. Also, there are lots of recreational opportunities for kids and families to enjoy.
The best areas in Hueytown or around Allison Bonnett Park where there are nice subdivisions and housing communities that are reasonably priced and allow you an opportunity to live in a house that is not breaking the bank in your finances. I've enjoyed the convenience to job opportunities in Birmingham that are very close by and you can easily live in Hueytown and commute to Birmingham for work. If you're looking to move into the Birmingham area, I recommend moving to Hueytown if you like to be away from the hustle and bustle of a large city and enjoy a nice quiet life with your family.
