Living in Muscle Shoals makes me believe in magic. Not the fairy tale magic that you see in movies, but more like the magic when a good thing comes together. If you believe in yourself, you can make it anywhere. At least that is what I was raised to believe. You have to be tough to make it in Muscle Shoals at any rate.
The crime is one of the biggest issues that I've seen so far living here. Aside from the friendly demeanor of most in this southern town, the crime is that one thing that scares most new residents away. I know that the employment staying steady, as well as great weather is a plus.
Don't try to make any night time rendezvous or anything, because the closest thing you will get to night life is a cool night out at Logans Roadhouse. Keeping that in mind will make your stay here that much more enjoyable, trust me.
