While it has long been an important commercial center in the South, Birmingham is determined to make its mark as a center for fine food and entertainment. You can fly from Los Angeles to Birmingham from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in six hours. LAX is conveniently located off Highway 1 and Interstate 405. The airport provides free shuttle service to Metro Green Line Aviation Station and the Metro Bus Center.
Birmingham established itself as an industrial and transportation hub in the south after the Civil War. It is built on the rolling hills of the southern Appalachian Mountains. The downtown area is certainly the cultural center of the city, and the Birmingham Art Museum, Civil Rights Institute and Alabama Theater are within a few blocks of each other. The city s most prominent landmark is the cast iron statue of the Roman god, Vulcan, a tribute to Birmingham s industrial heritage. The statue stands high above the city on a tower on Red Mountain. The Five Point area of town has always been a popular nightspot for Birmingham locals and visitors alike.
When you fly from Los Angeles to Birmingham, your journey ends at Birmingham-Shuttleworth International Airport (BHM). BHM is easily accessed from exit 129 off Interstate 59/20. Birmingham has mild winters with temperature rarely falling below freezing and daytime temperatures in the low 60s. The city proudly celebrates its German heritage with Oktoberfest in September.
