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:

1. Hoover

  Celebrating 20 years of marriage, Jacky & Bobbie Webb Harris renewed their vows today with their two children, Kristen and Lane and numerous other relatives and fiends in attendance.  A reception followed with great food and fellowship.

One unexpected incident followed the conclusion of the ceremony…the couple’s daughter, Kristen, received a proposal of marriage from her boyfriend!  Congratulations Kristen and Devin…because, she said YES!
