Great location for black history. The South side of town is very eccentric, but interesting. There are a lot of restaurants and shopping off of highway 280.

We found at least one good restaurant and Sloss Furnaces and both made the city pretty interesting, its history is possibly my favorite part.

I personally did not like Birmingham. It was in many places filthy, and the air was dirty. I would not recommend anyone visit this place, dispite the historic sites.

If you are at all interested in the Civil Rights movement, you have a very short window of time to visit and, possibly, talk to people who actually lived through it. Birmingham and Montgomery have an amazing collection of museums and historic sites that really bring that period to life.

There are interesting places to go to in Birmingham, but the city has remained stagnant and lacks any dynamic vitality. I've been to Birmingham numerous times over the years and it has always appeared to remain the same.

I really like the state of Alabama. It's very scenic, beautiful and hilly. I stayed in a resort a little outside of Birmingham, and it was super fun!
