Birmingham is nestled at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains between two railroads that contributed to its being called the “Magic City,” due to rapid growth in the early 1900s and becoming the primary industrial center of the South. Today, as Alabama’s largest city, Birmingham has transformed itself in to one of the nation’s most livable cities, boasting more green space per capita. Its vibrant downtown has become a flourishing loft community with a world-class culinary scene and a medical research, banking and service-based economy. Known for its role in America’s Civil Rights Movement, you can “walk the path of history” in Birmingham’s Civil Rights District.
A lively center for arts, entertainment and shopping, with 99 historic neighborhoods rich in history, Birmingham offers a diversity of things to do, such as the Birmingham Historic Touring Company Ghost Walk, Southern Museum of Flight, Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame and the Alabama Veterans Memorial Park. The Birmingham 2016 Artwalk transforms the loft neighborhood into a street festival atmosphere for two days with visual artists, live musicians, street performers, food and drink vendors and children’s activities.
Other great things to see and do in downtown Birmingham are the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, 33,000 square feet dedicated to the preservation of Alabama’s exceptional sports heritage; Railroad Park, 19 acres of green space dedicated to recreation, family activities, concerts and cultural events; and Five Points, located just outside of downtown, where you will see turreted Victorian houses, skyscraper apartments, Art Deco buildings, and historic places of worship, like St. Paul’s Cathedral, built in 1893.
