Birmingham, AL

31 Mar

Stop #2 on our trip through the south? Birmingham, Alabama. Affectionately referred to as the ‘Pittsburgh of the South,’ I’m not so sure that is  supposed to be a good thing… It definitely had its quirks but we managed to find some pretty great spots. The Civil Rights Institute was a highlight- it was really well done and as far as I’m concerned, everyone should pretty much be required to experience it at least once.

For some good live music definitely check out the Bottletree Cafe– I was pleasantly surprised with the caliber of bands this quirky little hipster dive books- we caught The Morning Benders which was pretty rad on a random Monday night in the middle of Alabama.
