Birmingham

Trip Planner USA  /  Alabama  /  Birmingham

Magic City

Birmingham may be one of America's most controversial cities. The 1950s and 1960s saw the Civil Rights Movement and the burning of an historical Baptist church, which served as a rallying point for black Americans protesting racism. The church has been rebuilt and is now a National Historic Landmark. The destination's downtown financial district is a cityscape of modern buildings, but sandwiched between these spots are cultural spaces that reflect the city's vibrant spirit. History, science, music, art, dance, performance, and fun are represented at attractions and spaces throughout the city. Many of these can be reached with a short bus ride. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Birmingham trip itinerary using our United States trip itinerary maker.
