Come Grow with Us!

The Madison Chamber of Commerce is proud to welcome you to our city. Madison truly has the “big city feel…in a small town package.” Recently ranked by Niche as the best suburb to live in Alabama and the best place to raise a family in Alabama, it’s no surprise that our schools rank #1 in Alabama for college preparedness. We are a high-tech community with one of the highest per capita incomes – yet our culture is steeped in the charm and hospitality for which the South is famous. In no time at all, you will begin to feel at home in this special community.

However, our innate Southern charm does not mean we are not a progressive and growing community! In the past few years, we have brought a large, high speed, fiber network into our community, built new infrastructure opening up over 1,500 acres of economic development along County Line Road and Town Madison, and added to and connected portions of our greenway system. We are also welcoming our new minor league baseball team – the Trash Pandas, to their new state-of-the-art baseball stadium. Plus, so much more!

We are the fastest growing city in Alabama, and you can feel the excitement in the community. Come experience our culture of change, diversity, and growth for yourself! Welcome to Madison!
