Information on the major cruise ports of the USA


Birmingham’s prominent part in America’s Civil Rights Movement is the story most often told here. The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is a comprehensive look at the nation’s journey toward equal rights for all citizens and includes galleries highlighting Birmingham’s momentous role in the movement.

The centerpiece of Birmingham’s Civil Rights District, the Institute faces historic Kelly Ingram Park and is across the street from the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, site of the infamous race-related bombing in 1963. The nearby Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame resides in the historic Carver Theater and honors jazz greats with ties to Alabama.

VisionLand, Alabama’s first amusement park, is one of only a few genuine “theme-parks,” with an industrial-themed water park. At McWane Center, science becomes an adventure. The Birmingham Museum of Art is the largest municipal art museum in the Southeast.

At the Birmingham Zoo a collection of nearly a thousand animals, many rare and unusual, entertains all the family. Across the street the Birmingham Botanical Gardens blanket 80 acres with 24 different gardens.

Near the Birmingham International Airport, the Southern Museum of Flight preserves equipment and information from the Southeast’s aviation history.

Sports fans enjoy exploring the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame Museum. The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum and road racing track has a banked raceway that winds and climbs through the middle of the 700-acre property.
