  • Water everywhere! The 41,000 acre Lake Martin is Alex City's pride. The 1,445-acre Wind Creek State Park and Nature Preserve on Lake Martin's shore is a great starting point for taking advantage of the boating, fishing, hiking, and swimming opportunities. Also of great pride is the Horseshoe Bend National Military Park on the Tallapoosa River which has nature trails, a boat ramp, and fishing. Events are held throughout the year, some of which commemorate the 1814 battle between Major General Andrew Jackson's army and the Red Stick Creek Indians which took place where the park is located.
  • Varied rental market! The Chamber of Commerce says that almost 35 percent of housing is renter occupied. Even better is the fact that anyone interested in finding a rental house can choose a preferred style of living - suburban, city center, lakeside, or country side. Rent a house or condominium on Lake Martin's lake shore or rent an apartment in town close to Highway 280. That puts renters close to the D.A.R.E Power Park and popular restaurants like Jake's.
  • Get some history! The quaint Alexander City Commercial Historic District welcomes anyone who appreciates preservation of buildings dating back to the 1800s. There are government buildings and specialty shops like the popular Cloud Nine clothing store. More history of a very different kind is found at the Wellborn Musclecar Museum, a place classic autos like the Super Bee and Roadrunner call home.
  • Lower real estate prices! The median home price in Alexander City is 80 percent of the Alabama average.
