Birmingham, Alabama: Big-City Personality, Small-City Charm
Birmingham was founded in 1871 at the crossing of two railroad lines. The city fittingly became a bustling site for iron and steel industries, and by the early 20th century, people had begun calling it the "Magic City." Birmingham pays homage to its roots at sites such as Vulcan Park and Museum, home to the world's largest cast-iron statue, and the 19-acre Railroad Park, which incorporates bricks and other objects found when it was built.
Such attractions have not only helped Birmingham balloon into Alabama's largest city, but also made it the state's cultural and economic engine. The city—which is tucked along the rippling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains—exudes Southern charm and hospitality, especially at its renowned venues. Museums dedicated to music, sports, and art pepper Birmingham's placid streets, as do activities for the whole family. At the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, visitors explore more than 12,000 plants spread across 67 acres, and at the Birmingham Zoo, they come face to face with some 700 wild animals.
