Living in Bessemer, AL

People here are friendly and welcoming, and enjoy tactile history in the town's Historic Lakewood neighborhood. Local residents can enjoy Alabama's Southern comforts without paying high living expenses. Bessemer's cost of living index of 87.8 is well below the United States average.
