Where to Live in Birmingham?

Ask Birmingham

I have got some suggestions from the Internet, but feel free to suggest things in the comments that I may have missed! Thanks for any suggestions!

Here's the current list of the most-recommended neighborhoods and suburbs (arranged in alphabetical order):

  • Avondale - Apartments for rent, cottages being built that will be available for purchase. In Avondale there are lots of hip places to eat and drink, see a show, and play in the park. Higher crime than other neighborhoods but not as dangerous as some people claim.
  • Crestwood - Houses for purchase and rent. Small, single-family homes great for young couples who would rather have a house with a yard than an apartment downtown. Close to Avondale and Downtown, close to Ruffner Mountain park, and has a few local eateries/drinkeries/shoperies worth visiting.
  • Downtown - Apartments and lofts to rent and purchase. Where the action is. You'll pay more in rent, but some would argue that you get what you pay for in terms of convenience and access to nightlife.
  • Five Points South - Apartments and houses to rent. UAB campus area, so great for students. Lots of big old houses with many bedrooms for you and your roommates. Also some great historical apartments with lots of charm and pretty cheap rent. Great walking community, lots of restaurants, bars, and mini parks.
