    The City Of Birmingham offers many great activities for people of all ages. A great Christmas tradition is the showing of Christmas movies at the Alabama Theater. The Alabama Theater is known as "The Showplace of The South" and first opened in 1927. The entire theater has been restored to its original charm and attending any event is like taking a step back in time. Consider an outing at this great theater and definitely try to take in a Christmas movie to put yourself in the spirit!

  • I have passed this beautiful park time after time. I stopped today and walked to see what I would encounter. A mom had her children down at the water letting them play in the water. Another couple said they walk at the park everyday with their new dog. It is an easy path and very open. I liked being in the shade most of the time. It made me want to return with my pets.

    I was driving home one day on Hwy 280 and saw a sign about a new Laser Combat Center opening, a fun place for all ages... We just so happened to be looking for a venue for my grandson's birthday party and after visiting the 9000 square foot arena decided to go there. What a great place, the staff was friendly and helpful and the kids had a great time. Put this on your list when visiting Birmingham...

  • The Thomas Jefferson Tower has a roof top "Zeppelin Mooring Mast". Built in 1926, a time when travel by dirigible was considered to be the next greatest means to travel. Birmingham like many other cities around the world built docking stations. The Thomas Jefferson Tower was a perfect location -- across the street from the train station. With lack of use nor need it had deteriorated. The docking station has not been repaired to look like it was originally. As a symbol of Birmingham's history it was decided to "Light it Up". The LED lighting system will have the ability to change colors. An old icon shall be a new symbol high up on the City of Birmingham's skyline.

    No questions asked; this is where a Birmingham resident wants to spend the 4th of July. Well, at least the evening part of it. Day can be spent at a cook-out, or the river or lake, or any number of fun locales. But around 7- 8 p.m. it's time to stake out your spot for Thunder on the Mountain. My short video doesn't even serve this fireworks show justice. Thunder on the Mountain takes place at the foot of Vulcan on Red Mountain and can be seen pretty much anywhere you can see the Vulcan sclpture. That's lots of places, but some of the best spots are Regions Field, Railroad Park and The Club, although people do watch this show from overpasses and TV stations and all kinds of unlikely places. Just bring your comfy things like drinks, snacks and blankets and turn your car radio to one of the local stations that plays the soundtrack. If you've got those things and a good view, you're set.
  • Looking for something fun to do this weekend? The St. Elias Food Festival is a fun time for all ages and sure to be a great family outing!

  • As Birmingham and Hoover are growing and bringing in new businesses, so is the South Shades Crest area! In addition to the Grove shopping center off of Highway 150 there is a new Starbucks, McDonald's, Sprouts Grocery Store, and a UAB expansion coming to the area. This location is just off of Exit 10 off of I-459 and it's just a few miles from the Galleria Mall area. What a great place to live and raise your family.
  • For all of the folks who love living in the Birmingham area with its conveniences, attractions, and businesses, there is a place to enjoy these things without living in the "city."

    A lot of us grew up in smaller towns where you knew everyone and felt safe to wonder around the community because it was small and everyone knew what was going on around the town. Sometimes living in the hustle and bustle of the "big city" seems like we've wondered from our roots. That's not the case if you live in the Oak Mountain area! It's such a small town feel with a great community of families who like to live "out" of town and slightly away from the busyness. The bonus to this is that you are actually not far from everything that makes Birmingham so great and convenient, it just feels that way!

    Homes on large lots, lots of wooded properties, homes away from the sounds of the interstates, and neighborhoods that each feel like their own community of friends and support. Make Oak Mountain your home away from the small town today!
  • A 17,000 square foot furnishing store opened in the Lee Branch Shopping Center. The store features new furniture and customized pieces. One of the unique pieces is a tree, cut in half lengthwise and hollowed out. They like to take old things and make them new. Every time you visit Urban Home Market you will find different stuff. The business is owned by Kathy McMahon and her two daughters.
  • I'm old enough to remember when it took forever to get from Mountain Brook Village to Downtown Birmingham, before the Red Mountain Cut was made and the Red Mountain Expressway was built. My family lived nearby and I can remember going to the site and hunting for fossils. I'm not sure when this was exactly (maybe I was 9 or 10), but contractors broke ground on The Cut in February 1963 and the Red Mountain Expressway opened in 1970, so our fossil hunting expeditions took place sometime after they made serious progress cutting through the mountain. That quarter-mile slice into Red Mountain revealed what represents a 440 million year geological time span. 440 million years is really, really old! Below is a fascinating article about Red Mountain, the expressway and Birmingham yesterday, today and a look to the future.
