Diversity is this city’s greatest strength and strongest appeal. A grand spectrum of attitudes and cultures that are all a part of the charm and surprise that is Birmingham.
ngham was born out of iron and steel. Remnants of these early beginnings are preserved in places such as Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark.
The city is
also well-known for its prominent role in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. A visit to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute gives visitors an in-depth look at that important era.
Wine enthusiasts will want to visit the Alabama Wine Trail and Vulcan Park and Museum that has the world’s largest cast iron statue and a spectacular view of the city. The Birmingham Museum of Art has one of the finest collections in the Southeast. First time visitors to the art museum are often heard to remark, “I had no idea….”
The area’s antique shops are becoming places of legend in upscale lifestyle magazines around the country. Trendy shopping centers have taken root all over the area, bringing tony, high-end shops to the state’s retail giant. Dozens of new art galleries surprise enthusiasts and collectors with a wide variety of paintings, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, fine and funk art.
Birmingham is home to “the Oscars of dining” with James Beard Foundation Award winners and nominees. Anyone visiting the city should take in the beauty of down-home cooking as well. Visitors with an appetite for live music will find that it is the city’s signature entertainment.
