From its Indian Mound Museum and University of North Alabama campus to expansive Wildwood Park and Scenic River Heritage Park, Florence is a city with diversity in culture, landscape and people. On the banks of the Tennessee River, homes for rent in Florence are a great place for families to live. Although Florence is well developed with colleges, stadiums, hospitals, stores, business, restaurants and much more, the city still has plenty of natural beauty to spare, whether is the scenic bridges stretching over the river or the plentiful parks. Just across the shore from Florence, Muscle Shoals give residents another unique community to explore.
