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.
