Chelsea is a fairly small town in Alabama, home to just about 10,000 people. However, the town is growing - and fast! In fact, it is considered to be the fasting growing city in its county, Shelby, which coincidentally happens to be the fastest growing county in the state of Alabama! In addition to its famous residents, Chelsea has a slew of suburban amenities, like schools, parks, restaurants, shops, and more. If you like small town living, but sometimes crave something a little bigger, then Chelsea is certainly somewhere you should consider moving. It's just minutes away from nearby big city Alabama, which is a world-class place and has all the dining, entertainment, and culture that you can imagine. If you want to live somewhere a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll, then this might just be the place for you. Pack your bags and head to Chelsea; you're going to like what you see!

Moving to Chelsea

If you're planning to move to Chelsea, AL, you're in luck, since the town is full of wonderful rental homes for you to choose from. The first step to finding the right rental apartment in Chelsea is thinking about what you want in a home. Narrowing down your priorities from the get-go can help you shorten your housing search, saving you lots of time and energy once you embark.

Think about things that are important to you in a home rental, like size, space, location, amenities, or community. Then use those priorities to make a must-have list and a can't-have list. Then, armed with those lists, head on your housing hunt prepared. Search through apartments on an apartment locator, then schedule appointments to see the ones you like. Before you head to see apartments, be sure to gather bank statements, tax returns, pay stubs, and more so that you can apply for an apartment as soon as you see the one you love. Applying for an apartment quickly will ensure that someone else doesn't snag it out from under you!

Also on the long list of important things to consider before you move is the deposit. It often takes about 3 months' rent to take the apartment off the market, so you'll want to pinch your pennies and be ready to make a big investment. But don't worry; this city is worth the time it takes to find the perfect rental home.

Living in Chelsea

Chelsea itself is pretty quiet and country. At the center of town, there are businesses and restaurants, but as you go further from the center, the town feels more and more rural. That means that there are great neighborhoods with yards and trees, but not a ton of people walking the streets and experiencing that thrilling big city hustle and bustle. If that's what you want, perfect! Spend your time in Chelsea, and you can eat at local favorites like the Chelsea Coffee House or Grill Depot. If you like to shop, you can do it in Chelsea, too. The area is home to tons of international chains like Walgreen's and Dollar Tree, as well as local mom and pop shops.

If you're wanting something a bit more exciting for your daily life, though, fear not! Chelsea is just 18 miles from Birmingham. This big city is one of the most thriving and exciting cities in the south, and there's no shortage of stuff to do there. If you want to learn about history, check out the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, the 16th Street Baptist Church, or the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame. If you are more into nature, visit the Birmingham Zoo or the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Culture lovers will find plenty to do there, too. Music lovers can catch a concert at the Alabama Theatre, and fine art aficionados can see beautiful paintings at the Birmingham Museum of Art. So if you end up in Chelsea, you'll have the best of both worlds: big city living and quiet country life.

Central Chelsea: The center part of Chelsea is the centerpiece of all its action. It's home to the Thornton Mobile Home Park, as well as the Indian Hills Country Club, where residents can socialize and play a round of golf. If you like a little more activity, this is the area for you. It has some great restaurants, like Johnny Ray's and Sanpeggio's Pizza.

Eastern Chelsea: This part of town is furthest from Birmingham, so it might not be the most convenient spot to be in when you want to get out of town and head to the big city. However, it's a lovely residential area with lots of single family homes. Consider this for quiet country living, but it doesn't have too many apartment buildings, so if you're set on renting an apartment, this might be the wrong area for you to look for a new home.

Living in Chelsea

Chelsea itself is pretty quiet and country. At the center of town, there are businesses and restaurants, but as you go further from the center, the town feels more and more rural. That means that there are great neighborhoods with yards and trees, but not a ton of people walking the streets and experiencing that thrilling big city hustle and bustle. If that's what you want, perfect! Spend your time in Chelsea, and you can eat at local favorites like the Chelsea Coffee House or Grill Depot. If you like to shop, you can do it in Chelsea, too. The area is home to tons of international chains like Walgreen's and Dollar Tree, as well as local mom and pop shops.

If you're wanting something a bit more exciting for your daily life, though, fear not! Chelsea is just 18 miles from Birmingham. This big city is one of the most thriving and exciting cities in the south, and there's no shortage of stuff to do there. If you want to learn about history, check out the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, the 16th Street Baptist Church, or the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame. If you are more into nature, visit the Birmingham Zoo or the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Culture lovers will find plenty to do there, too. Music lovers can catch a concert at the Alabama Theatre, and fine art aficionados can see beautiful paintings at the Birmingham Museum of Art. So if you end up in Chelsea, you'll have the best of both worlds: big city living and quiet country life.
