It's where I was born and grew up, and most of my family is still here. I lived in Phoenix for about five years (mainly due to a much larger job market), but moved back here recently. Housing costs and being closer to family were my two biggest reasons for moving back. Increasing crime (especially road rage shootings), homelessness, panhandlers, and the California migration didn't make me want to stay either.
My relocation wasn't as much about moving back to Mobile as it was moving back to the South. While I may not stay in Mobile forever, I don't see myself moving out of the South again. And that's mainly due to the people, the food, and the environment here.
