Meet The Magic City
Price - $60 | Days - Tuesday-Saturday | Time - 1:45 PM | Length - 3 hours
Welcome to our most historical tour of Birmingham, AL. It is here where we focus on all the good and bad the city has endured.
From its founding to its foundries, from our city fathers to civil rights, we crisscross Bham checking out historic sites all over town. We'll learn about the history of iron and how it created the industrial capital of the south. We'll get a great look an ancient Roman god and see a full moon always on display.
We'll also learn how a local built the oldest ballpark in America, and we'll shed a little light on the children who marched in May of 1963.
We try to provide you with a glimpse into the life and times of Birmingham from its origins to present day.
