  • Profile

    Something we hear time and again from first-time visitors to Birmingham is that they never knew how beautiful it is. With the foothills of the Appalachians as a dramatic backdrop, the city is laid out on a series of lush rolling hills and takes advantage of it with almost 4,000 acres of parks and stunning golf courses. But, the natural beauty of the area is but part of what makes Birmingham special. The same people awe-struck by our natural beauty will tell you they never expected to encounter a city with so much charm, hospitality, and so many things to do.

    Meeting goers love nothing more than a great meal, and Birmingham has rightfully earned a reputation for being able to provide that in spades. (There’s a reason we’re called the Dinner Table of the South!) So, should you mistakenly have us pigeonholed as serving only barbeque and fried pies, prepare to loosen your belts a notch. Here in Birmingham, you can hardly throw a martini olive without striking a James Beard Foundation award winner or nominee.

    The Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) has meeting facilities all on one campus. The BJCC complex campus has 350,000 sq. ft. of meeting and exhibition space. The complex includes an 16,500-seat arena and 4,000 seats in two theaters, along with two hotels and a dining and entertainment district.

    Some of the best golf on Earth can be found at public courses around Birmingham, including two scenic and challenging courses that are part of the state’s Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

    Visitors also find the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, which houses the world’s largest collection of vintage and contemporary motorcycles alongside a dramatic racetrack, to be a fascinating diversion.

    Shopping Birmingham is a delightful diversion, with open air malls, unique boutiques, and dozens of art galleries that surprise enthusiasts and collectors alike.

    Our guests also experience the story of Birmingham’s role in the long march to civil rights as told at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, the focal point of the city’s Civil Rights District, now a national monument.
