Shoals Economic Development Authority

Dedicated to Economic Development in Northwest Alabama

The area known as “The Shoals” is located along either side of the Tennessee River in Northwest Alabama. The Florence-Muscle Shoals MSA, including the major cities of Muscle Shoals, Sheffield, Tuscumbia, and Florence, is quickly becoming one of the trendiest areas in the Southeast, blending a unique mix of culture, heritage, blue collar work ethic, quality of life, and an educated community of lifelong learners. The Shoals has been recognized as one of ten communities in TVA’s Community Livability pilot program, meaning our area possesses the assets that people look for when deciding on a community to make their home. Additionally, the City of Florence received a Valley Sustainable Gold Community Designation for their strides in sustainability efforts. With two hydroelectric dams and two solar farms, join us as we grow into a bright, sustainable future.
