      Talladega, Alabama: Not the Best Place to Raise a Family

      I am a resident of Talladega, Alabama. While my surroundings do meet my needs, I honestly can’t say a ton of pleasant things about the area. It simply just provides me with the basics to enjoy life, but not a lot of excitement.

      Living in Talladega does have its challenges. Unfortunately, the crime rate is high in the area and the average median household income is low. The people in the surrounding community of Talladega do try to keep to themselves and are not always the most helpful people if you are in need.

      The best areas in Talladega include the theater on the square downtown. I will say that this little theater does provide some entertainment and adds culture to the community. Unfortunately, not many citizens take advantage of the little theater.

      If you only need the basics, then you might be content here. I would not recommend this area though if you enjoy going out to eat or if you want to raise your family. The local school division also needs improvements when it comes to how it is operated. I would explore other areas, before choosing Talladega as home.
