Cullman is one of the fastest growing communities in the state, and among the many reasons for that are its excellent schools, natural beauty including access to beautiful Smith Lake, a job-ready workforce, and robust economy — it ranks No. 1 statewide for overall economic development and expansion. It checks all the boxes for good infrastructure and access, with a location just off Interstate 65 that is almost exactly the midway point between Huntsville and Birmingham. Despite its longtime perception as a younger sibling of sorts to these bigger-city neighbors, Cullman is "growing up" while not sacrificing its small-town charms.

FISHING AND OUTDOORS
Located between Huntsville and Birmingham, this 21,000-acre lake includes winding streams and sloughs and features steep bluffs along much of its 500 miles of shoreline. Numerous marinas, recreation areas, and boat ramps offer access to the fine fishing on Smith Lake and a great outdoor experience.
