Layers of goodJacob Alan Bell
I love Birmingham because not only is it a great place to go see all these really cool events and people, but it has so much diversity of culture and things to see in general that there’s something new every single day.
So much to doJenny Mellown
I love Birmingham because it has a small town feel in the middle of a city. There is so much to do from local breweries to sporting events. There is always something going on and it is easy to find something to do!
Always something newAmy Mezzell
The variety of restaurants, hangouts, stores, venues, and places to explore is incredible for a city this size. You get all of the variety of a larger city with the pleasant atmosphere of a small town.
