Birmingham ...

is newer than I thought. It was developed as an industrial site after the Civil War. I always assumed that it was around during the war, supplying iron goods to the Confederacy.
  • has a beautiful park (Vulcan Park) that overlooks the city. The massive statue to Vulcan, god of iron, towers over the city. The statue was built for the St. Louis World’s Fair and came home to Birmingham afterwards.

  • is hot in June.

  • doesn’t open on Sunday until 1:00 in the afternoon.

  • has some great barbeque. Mike O – I didn’t get Ollie’s, but Jim and Nick's was tasty tasty.

is a place that I would like to see again ... in the fall.
