Dig into History and Explore the Outdoors with Top Attractions & Things to Do in Birmingham
The largest city in Alabama has been dubbed “The Magic City” due to its quick growth during the industrial era and remains a bustling city steeped in history and attractions today. It’s hard to miss the giant statue of Vulcan as soon as you arrive, the largest cast iron statue in the world at Vulcan Park and Museum. Sports fans will love a game at Regions Field and stopping by the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame to learn about local legends. Family-friendly hiking is a great way to enjoy a beautiful day at Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve or Red Mountain Park, both with a variety of trails for all ages.
No vacation to Alabama would be complete without hopping over to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute for an engaging lesson on the Civil Rights Movement that you could never get in a classroom. For a different look at history, head over to the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame. Tadpoles will also be sure to love a stop by McWane Science Center’s many interactive exhibits and spotting their favorite animals at Birmingham Zoo. There is so much to do and see in “The Ham” to make for a toadally awesome family vacation.
