Birmingham is a Southern city that is—all at once—young, traditional, vibrant, friendly, complex and, some even say, exotic. The eccentricities of the South and Southerners have been widely noted in literature and on film. It is diversity that is our greatest strength and our strongest appeal. We talk about progress, but with a decidedly Southern accent. We are a spectrum of attitudes and cultures, all a part of the charm and exoticism that is the South.
The City of Birmingham contains many wonderful attractions including: The Birminham Civil Rights Institute, The Birmingham Zoo and VisionLand Theme Park. Other attractions of note include: The McWane Center, the Birmingham Museum of Art and the International Motorsports Hall of Fame.
