Parkside is the best place to start exploring Birmingham. With icons like the color tunnel and the home field of the Birmingham Barons, Parkside is a great place to spend your day off. (There are also a few breweries to boot.)

Birmingham, AL 35233

If you enjoy an excellent locally-brewed craft beer, Good People is the place for you. Stop by for a $10 tour — complete with your choice of beer and a souvenir. From the famed Bearded Lady to the dark Coffee Oatmeal flavored Stout, there’s something here for all beer-lovers. If you love the idea of craft beer, but don’t want to take a toll on your figure, stop by for happy hour yoga every Tuesday at 6pm. Just $10 gets you a yoga class and a delicious beer, so you can keep the beer belly away.  (Tours take place on Saturday and Sunday at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.)


Regions Field
1401 First Avenue South
Birmingham, AL 35233

What better way to show off your Birmingham pride than by supporting the Birmingham Barons? It’s the perfect activity with fun for all ages. Stock up on some baseball memorabilia while you watch the Barons hit a home run or two. Baseball caps, foam fingers and ice cream bowls shaped like helmets are all available to show off your team spirit. And, of course, you can never go wrong with peanuts and Cracker Jack’s. (Find the Barons’ complete schedule here.)

If you’re looking for fun things to do in Birmingham, you’ll never go wrong at Railroad Park. A beautiful 19-acre park in the heart of Birmingham, Railroad Park boasted the title of Best New Park in the US for 2012, and with good reason. It’s the perfect place to get your pals together for a picnic (for free) or tone those muscles at one of the many (also free) outdoor exercise classes offered on site. Railroad Park also hosts many charity events and outdoor concerts, so you’ll never be without a new activity to try. (Visit any day from 7am-11pm.)
