Relocating to Birmingham and Discovering the Magic City

Birmingham is one of the three most populous cities in Alabama, along with Montgomery and Huntsville with which it sometimes switches spots. It is the seat of Jefferson County and an important regional hub as it lies at the center of the largest metropolitan area in the state.

While the median home value in Birmingham is nearly 50 percent lower than in the capital city of Huntsville, fewer people own their homes here, preferring to rent at values very similar to Huntsville or Montgomery. If you are moving to Birmingham and want to test the waters first, renting does make a lot of sense. However, buying a home ends up being more affordable if you decide to make your stay permanent.

Birmingham Attractions You Don't Want To Miss

Relocating is an exciting experience but it can also be overwhelming, especially in a place that is dubbed the "Magic City". While the nickname comes from its rapid expansion during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Birmingham's current magic draws on the many attractions and entertainment options that can make it difficult to choose where to go first.

Check out our curated recommendations and don't forget to also share them with your friends and family when they come over to visit:

  • Alabama Sports Hall of Fame over 5,000 sports artifacts honoring great athletes from across the state.

  • Birmingham Museum of Art one of the largest art museums in the Southeastern US, with over 24,000 works of art.

Enjoy the Greater Outdoors in Birmingham

The many parks in Birmingham stand as proof of the commitment the city has made to the well-being of its citizens. The most popular choices for hiking and outdoor enjoyment in the area are the Aldridge Gardens and lake, the Railroad Park in downtown Birmingham, the Avondale Park with its sports fields, Moss Rock Preserve for climbing enthusiasts, Red Mountain Park with its over 10 miles of trails, and Alabama's largest state park, Oak Mountain.

If you are into canoeing and kayaking, try out Cahaba River or Locust Fork on the Black Warrior River, but keep in mind that the latter is not suitable for beginners. Also make sure to keep your sports equipment in a safe storage space, like a climate controlled unit, away from high humidity and extreme temperatures. There are plenty of storage units in Birmingham AL that offer 24 hour storage access so you can always be ready for some outdoor fun without crowding your home.

What Birmingham Neighborhood Suits You Best?

Downtown Birmingham, Lakeview, and Avondale are all about shopping, dining, and nightlife, which is why many young people prefer to rent here and experience the hustle and bustle of the city day in and day out. If you are looking for a quieter area, your best bet would be Mountain Brook or Vestavia Hills, but don't rule out the fast-growing suburbs of Hoover or Leeds either.
