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.
