The Right Place

What makes the Birmingham area a great place to live and work?

Some say it is location. Just minutes to an hour-or-so from hiking trails, state parks, lakes, rivers and mountains – depending on how far you want to explore. Just a few hours by car, or a short flight from Birmingham’s international airport, to New Orleans, Atlanta, Nashville and other great getaway cities.

Other people say it is the natural beauty – that life in the lush Southern forest, nestled among emerald hills, cannot be beat.

Still others say it is the Magic City itself – Birmingham – a city whose arts, culture and entertainment scenes will surprise you. It is the state’s largest city and a hub for business, medical research, higher education, civil-rights leadership, urban renewal, historic neighborhood revitalization, environmental progress and sports events. The award-winning Railroad Park, the new Regions Field ballpark home of the Birmingham Barons, the trendy Uptown entertainment district...these are just three recent examples of the good things happening in Birmingham.

For all the right reasons, Birmingham will become the right place for you. Want to learn more? These links will get you started. Click on a few and explore. You’ll see why Alabama is called the “state of surprises.”
