Leeds Alabama is Your Dream City
Nestled just 17 miles from downtown Birmingham, Leeds is a tri-county municipality, straddling the borders of Jefferson, Shelby, and St Clair counties. It's incredibly convenient to I-20 and I-59, as well as the Birmingham International Airport, but maintains enough distance to be isolated from the traffic and the issues that tend to come along with living in "the city". You can easily be in larger cities like Birmingham and Atlanta in minutes.
