Birmingham Vacations

Birmingham, Alabama

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.

Birmingham highlights

  • Looking back

    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.

  • Sightseeing

    Most visitors' first stop is at Vulcan Park and Museum. The largest cast iron statue in the world has a circular outdoor platform for a panoramic view of the area. Alabama has a long and storied history of automobile racing. In May 2003, a new chapter began with the first public race at Barber Motorsports Park. The racing track has been hailed around the world as one of the best existence. The adjacent Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum houses the country's largest collection of vintage cars and motorcycles.

    Roller coaster enthusiasts around the country call Alabama Adventure's "Rampage" one of the top wooden coaster rides to be found anywhere.

    At McWane Science Center, the IMAX Dome Theater treats viewers to spectacular, realistic film magic. The adjoining science center is hands-on fun for all ages.

    See more than 700 species of animals at the Birmingham Zoo and its new Children's Zoo, just minutes from downtown.

    The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is a comprehensive look at the nation's journey toward equal rights for all citizens and includes galleries highlighting Birmingham's momentous role in the movement.

    Sports fans enjoy exploring the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame Museum. This home for heroes includes memorabilia from the late University of Alabama Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant, a tribute to Olympic great Jesse Owens, and other displays showcasing the careers of Alabama-connected sports figures. The nearby Birmingham Museum of Art is one of the finest museums in the Southeast.

    Some of the best golf in the region can be found on public courses in the area, including Birmingham's two challenging courses along the state's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
