America's Best Performing Small Cities

We locals already know how special the Eastern Shore area of Baldwin County is but more and more, we are getting recognized by publications around the country.  The Eastern Shore is a mini metropolitan area made up of the cities of Spanish Fort, Daphne, and Fairhope.  For the purposes of this article, Foley was also used in tallying the numbers for the Eastern Shore.

Once again our area has been highlighted for its growth, this time by the Milken Institute.  This group is a think tank that researches and explores solutions that affect all of us on a global scale as it relates to educational and financial factors.  In their latest report for the best performing small cities in the country, our mini-metro ranked 11 out of 201 cities that were researched.  You can find the article and ranking factors in the link below.

The demand on our Eastern Shore remains strong on an annual basis which is reflected by our increasing population figures.  So, there is no doubt that jobs will continue to grow in the future since new businesses and expansions of existing businesses are attracted to our area as well.

My shameless plug…….

If you are one of the many who are moving to our wonderful mini-metro area, reach out to me.  I’ve been selling homes for 13 years and I know this market inside and out.
