Living and Income
The Montgomery area is a balance between production and service economies with major interstates in all directions; public, private and military institutions of higher learning; and a proud heritage to showcase.
The warm Southern hospitality, high quality of life and low cost of living make Montgomery a wonderful place to put down roots and raise a family. Montgomery offers everything expected in a big city – from world-class arts and theater to state-of-the-art health care and vibrant retail – all with the small-town warmth seldom found in a city of this size.
