HOOVER, Ala. — Niche.com, a site that seeks to “make choosing a neighborhood, college, or K-12 school a more transparent process” by “providing reviews and insight from everyday experts,” on Tuesday released its annual list of the best towns (pop. under 100k) to raise a family in Alabama.

Niche compiled the ranking by weighing each town’s crime and safety (20 percent), education (20 percent), access to libraries (10 percent), community (10 percent), housing (10 percent), percentage of residents between 18-44 (10 percent), percentage of residents under 9 years of age (10 percent), access to day cares (10 percent), and access to grocery stores (10 percent).

Here are the top 20:
