Sip on a delicious mixed drink, local brew, or choose from their incredibly vast whisky, scotch, and moonshine selection at Dram Whiskey Bar. Better yet, try the bacon-infused bourbon cocktail and take a seat outside on their spacious back patio—...
Save Place
1701 Valley View Dr, Birmingham, AL 35209, USA
Built by Italian artist Giuseppe Moretti, Vulcan (the Roman god of fire) is the world’s largest cast iron statue. It is made of local iron, which is appropriate since Birmingham got its nickname, the Magic City, from the incredible iron industry...

1236, 20 32nd St N, Birmingham, AL 35222, USA
With its rusty smoke stacks reaching for the sky, Sloss Furnaces is one of the most recognizable land-marks of Birmingham. It’s more than just a city land-mark; it’s a testament to the Industrial Revolution that not only built the “Magic City,”...
