Retirement & Relocation

Retirement is the day when you stop working and start enjoying seven day weekends, and here in North Alabama, there is plenty to see and experience as you live your life after retirement. Looking to retire or relocate? North Alabama’s natural beauty, mild winters, affordable cost of living, opportunities for an active lifestyle, access to healthcare, and rich, authentic cultural experiences are just a few of the reasons the region is a great place to retire. The cost of living in Alabama is very low and the state consistently ranks in the top 10 most affordable places in the United States to retire. From soaring mountains to sparkling lakes, North Alabama was once a hidden secret. Today, visitors travel from all over to trek along the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains for some of the country’s most scenic beauty and natural wonders.  And, thanks to the flowing waters of the Tennessee River, North Alabama boasts some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the United States. Every weekend offers a different festival to experience and pack your appetite because the region is home to an array of unique and quirky restaurants.   And so the adventure begins!
