Birmingham, AL - "Diverse City" USA

I am very grateful for the return of tourists, to our beautiful Birmingham, from the April and September tornadoes that cut a swath through many of our neighborhoods. Birmingham, Alabama is within the Dixie Alley or Tornado Alley and we are buffeted with hurricanes and storms coming mainly off the Gulf Coast. Due to its proximity to the central Gulf Coast, makes Birmingham a city which provides Appalachian mountain activities, the best in dining, world famous entertainers like American Idol, Ruben Studdard who calls Birmingham home and a recent Bob Seger concert, and other special events throughout the year. Come and join me and my friends for half price bottle and wine Thursdays, at various downtown locations, or free wine tasting Wednesdays, or learn about our environment with daily, nature scope exhibits. The bright lights of Birmingham's nightline city scape, will allow us to parteee' at fun locations as the streets fill with people from all around the world. Birmingham, Alabama offers its visitors antebellum history tours, motorsports parks, museums, zoos, outdoor theatres, river boat tours, theme parks, and much more for family fun and eclectic tastes. If you visit Birmingham and decide you want to relocate and live in Birmingham or any of its neighboring towns, your decision is a good one. Our nation's President is looking for youthful inspiration to plan for future trips to Mars, well, Birmingham can offer you jobs in the aerospace and aviation industries. Other Birmingham industries have provided employment for my family and will help your family in the telecommunication field, engineering, soft drink industry and more. A real estate app is available for your iPad to view the affordable homes and rentals among our many idiomatic neighborhoods. My Birmingham has gone through many nicknames, whose present title is "Diverse City," but with all the storms that hit us, we always bounce back, so I am campaigning for a new title of "Birmingham - Forever."

Birmingham, AL City Review

I lived in Birmingham, AL for fifteen years. During that time, I saw the tail-end of its transformation from a bustling industrial town to a commercial center. While Birmingham is not truly a tourist destination, those who happen to be there for family or business reasons can find ways to entertain themselves should they be willing to spend some time in their rental car. Birmingham itself has little to offer, there are only a handful of things to do and attractions to see in Birmingham. The McWayne Science Center and the Art Museum are a few of the better attractions. There are many opportunities for shopping in Birmingham and some pretty good restaurants in the outlying areas. The suburb of Hoover is home to the Galleria Mall, one of the largest shopping malls in the southern United States. It is surrounded by additional malls and shopping facilities, as well as the home of the Birmingham Barons baseball team. An hour to the north is the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center, and within thirty minutes from the airport is the beginning of the Cahaba River. This region is home to the Cahaba Lily, one of the rarest lilies in the world.
