      I cannot recommend living in Irondale, AL enough to anyone looking to raise a family in a city with a small-town feel. Our community is wonderful out here. Everyone comes together frequently on the weekends for small festivals, and we constantly watch out for each other to create a safe environment. Although we look out for each other, it is still recommended that you be cautious at night. Crime is not non-existent, but theft still does happen.

      It’s easy to get around as well, as the town is located next to two major interstates. Access to the local Walmart, CVS, Sam’s Club and more is convenient as well, as everything is generally close to each other. The high school and middle school are also close to each other, so getting your kids to school is relatively hassle free. This community is perfect to raise a family in, and you should most certainly consider it if you’re looking to settle down.
