Italian ice cream.Doodle’s Italian Ice
3238 Cahaba Heights Road
Vestavia, AL 35243

Doodle’s is a one-of-a-kind place here in Birmingham, AL. It offers fresh and delicious homemade ices and sorbets that can’t be found anywhere else. In fact, they’re the only sellers of this type of dessert in the area, making a trip to their shop an extra special treat. Whether you’re in the mood for something refreshing and fruity or something a bit sweeter and heavier, Doodle’s promises to excite your taste buds. Personally, we recommend you sample the Ninja Turtle or the Oreo Mint, but those are just two flavors on a spectrum of deliciousness.

All of their items are high quality and come at a reasonable price, so whether you’re looking for yourself or a friend, the Blue Willow is one of those Birmingham shops sure not to disappoint.

3577 East Street
Birmingham, AL 35223

Situated behind the Summit down a series of back roads, this hidden complex has two areas divided into six fields¬†perfect for catering to your active needs. We recommend bringing a ball and some friends and playing a game of your choosing. Not up for group sports? These fields also offer a nice place to walk or enjoy a peaceful run. (Bonus: since it’s also close to Doodle’s, you can get your exercise in and then reward yourself for your effort.)
