Justin and I are finally getting settled into our new home in Ross Bridge. The inside of the house isn't yet picture-worthy, but I thought I'd give you a taste of the community through photos that I took this week. We LOVE our new neighborhood. It's the kind of place where people sit on front porches, drink sweet tea, and say hello to each other... my kind of place.
This is the main entrance to the community from Ross Bridge Parkway. We are 11 miles from downtown Birmingham, 7 minutes from our church, and within 10-20 minutes of most of our friends and family!
The first thing you see when you pull in is the Welcome Center on the right. Here, you can tour the history of Ross Bridge, and get directions to the model homes, if you are interested in living in Ross Bridge. Residents can also use this building for free to host events! We are hosting our first party there in November for Shawn and Marla, my sister-in-law's brother who married her best friend. Hilary is planning most everything from Mobile, but everyone is staying at the resort and having the party here at the Welcome Center!
Just past the Welcome Center is Ross Park. It is home to the community pool and playground. Justin and I live on the street that runs alongside the park.
This is the poolhouse and part of the play area. This place is packed on the week ends!
Looking at the pool from the entryway. You can reserve the pavillion for parties any time!
This is a shot of the pool area. On the side not shown here is the pavillion, kiddie pool and a splash pad where water shoots up from about 8 fountains in all different directions. That's our street that you can see behind the pool. You can just barely see our home at the end (it's yellow).
From the Ross Park, you can look down Grand Avenue and see the Ross Bridge Renaissance Golf Resort and Spa. This resort has 259 plush rooms with breathtaking views, 2 restaurants, a salt-water pool with a waterfall and slide, and so much more. The spa has been ranked as one of the best spas in the country! As a Ross Bridge resident, we get 20% off spa visits and 10% off food at the restaurants! Unfortunately (for some), no discounts on golf.
The course here is the 3rd longest in the entire world, and is the crown jewel of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Each year, we host the Senior PGA tour, Regions Charity Classic, which always brings famous golfers to our neighborhood. If you (or your hubby) likes to play golf, come stay with us! In addition to the Ross Bridge course, the Oxmoor Valley RTJ course is just outside Ross Bridge. There are two 18-hole courses there!
And last, but certainly not least, is our home. We never realized how much we would love our front porch and our neighbors. We are here to stay for a while, so you can write this address down in ink...
