Also, here is Fodor’s travel recs for Birmingham’s Theatre District.
Birmingham’s Theatre District is on top
- Alabama Theatre: home to the famous Wurlitzer organ
- The Lyric: known for the recent restoration and listed on the National Register of Historic Places
- The Carver: visit Alabama’s Jazz Hall of Fame
Following the theme of history and the early 1900s, Fodor’s highlights our jazz and classic film scene. If you’re from here, then you’re probably aware of Sun Ra, the jazz artist that influenced Solange Knowles. It only makes sense for Fodor’s to feature Birmingham’s jazz history as a reason to visit.
“This mid-sized, Southern city is home to multiple, century-old, restored theaters––showcasing everything from nationally touring bands to classic films to America’s unique Jazz heritage.”Jenny Adams for Fodor’s Go List
They also chose Birmingham for our repertoire of BBQ restaurants. Well done, Bham!
