Birmingham may be one of America's most controversial cities.
Get out of town with these interesting Birmingham side-trips: U.S. Space and Rocket Center (in Huntsville) and Little River Canyon National Preserve (in Fort Payne). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, get engrossed in the history at Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Birmingham Zoo, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at McWane Science Center.

To find reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Birmingham trip maker tool .

New York City to Birmingham is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive.
