Your Birmingham vacation
Birmingham rides the rich wooded foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, a series of ridges running northeast to southwest, giving the area dramatic topography. People like being in Birmingham. This is a generous city, blessed with its geographical good fortune, its stock of year round entertainment, and especially its irresistible Southernness. With a metropolitan population of nearly a million people, this is also a big city. Birmingham, however, embodies that Southern trait of counting family and friends important, not population statistics.

Though Birmingham stands in the heart of the Deep South, it is not an Old South city. Founded in 1871 at the crossing of two railroad lines, the city blossomed through the early 1900s as it rapidly became the South's foremost industrial center. By the early 1970s, Birmingham was undergoing a profound movement toward diversification. The huffing and puffing of Birmingham's legendary iron and steel mills gradually was replaced by a work force of medical and engineering professionals. Today, Birmingham enjoys a balance of manufacturing and service-oriented jobs in a thriving work force.
