Birmingham, Alabama host of the 2017 National Senior Games presented by Humana

If diversity were a place, it would be Birmingham.  People who visit here get a taste of that variety—in entertainment, cuisine, the arts, nightlife, the great outdoors—that brings them back time and again.

Birmingham was born out of iron and steel.  Remnants of these early beginnings are preserved in places such as Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark.  The city is also well-known for its prominent role in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.  A visit to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute gives visitors an in-depth look at that important era.

The area’s antique shops are becoming places of legend in upscale lifestyle magazines around the country.  Trendy malls have taken root all over the area, bringing tony, high-end shops to the state’s retail giant. Dozens of new art galleries surprise enthusiasts and collectors with a wide variety of paintings, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, fine and funk art.

Should you have us pigeonholed as serving only barbeque and fried pies, just remember that Birmingham is home to “the Oscars of dining” with James Beard Foundation Award winners and nominees.  Anyone visiting the city should take in the beauty of down-home cooking as well.  And visitors with an appetite for live music will find that it is the city’s signature entertainment.

So it is diversity that is this city’s greatest strength and strongest appeal.  We are a spectrum of attitudes and cultures that are all a part of the charm and intrigue that is Birmingham.
