I don´t know anything about Birmingham, but I will probably stay one night there in late july, on my way to Nashville.
Is the central parts generally safe to walk around in?
What can you say about the area between Amtrak station and Greyhound station? I will be arriving by train in the afternoon and plan to stay at a hotel close to the Greyhound station. Is that area in the most central parts of the town?
Why no pictures or at least a listing of the Jefferson County Courthouse?
Which DMV in Birmingham area is the best for teens to take road test?
I am considering going to New Orleans in July, so therefore will be passing through Birmingham on the way. Can anyone recommend a hotel/motel that is right off the interstate that is fairly inexpensive or perhaps recommend another town that I might could get an inexpensive hotel that is around the Birmingham area. I am traveling from Lexington, KY to New Orleans.
Any advice is appreaciated. Thanks
my wife and i will be at rod stewart concert jan 19....is it safe to walk from bjcc arena to downtown hotels....or is it dangerous to be in downtown later at night?
On the route between Atlanta and Memphis, we foresee to stop in Birmingham and more precisely in the BW of Beacon Drive at Irondale. We will stay there only one night and we choose this location because it is close to Hghw 20.
But is the area safe ? Some comments on Tripadvisor say it is unsafe.
I'm going to Birmingham this weekend and need some advice. I need a hotel that's not in a bad part of town and I'd also like to go horseback riding somewhere. Then, we're going out on the town. We're pretty money-limited, so any advice will be helpful! Thanks!
"Throw" an engagement party...sorry.
Looking for a place to through an engagement party for my best friend from college. They'll probably be about 80 people there and it'll be in late March. Does anyone have any ideas? I want it to be somewhere that isn't too formal but has a "nicer" feel to it. I'm open to restaurants, bars, etc.
Coming to Birmingham this weekend and need advice on where to stay. Have reservations at Days Inn on 11th Court West near Legion Field. Heard warnings about staying away from North and West Birmingham. Is this hotel in a decent area or should I stay elsewhere? Thanks.
I'll be spending some time in Birmingham next week. I've already checked out the member pages and got some good ideas from them (Thanks!) but I'd like to know if anyone else has any tips on fun things to do, good art galleries or funky shops, cultural things, or tasty restaurants. Please no BBQ places--I get all the good BBQ I can eat here in Texas. I'm going to be hanging out with a friend who's in grad school there, so any tips for two women in their twenties would be great. Thanks, everyone! Lisa
