Even if you live in Birmingham, there are just a few things that you absolutely have to do and if you don’t, you’re missing out from a ton of wonderful experiences you just can’t get anywhere else. So without any further delay, here are the top things you should make time to do in Birmingham, AL!

Baseball at Regions Field

If you haven’t done this, you really should make time. There’s just something wonderful about watching baseball from such a stadium like Regions. And if you’re lucky, one of those baseball’s will land in your soda and you can get an autograph! Okay, I’m joking. Maybe.

Enjoy a Day at Railroad Park

Winding walkways, an occasional train, ice skating in the winter and a field big enough for a good game of frisbee or relaxing next to the fountains? Railroad Park is perhaps one of the best places in Birmingham for a relaxing Springtime afternoon outside. And if you’re into that sort of thing, vert skateboarding can be had at Railroad Park so be prepared to show off your skills!
