Historical Highlights of Birmingham

On this 3 hr - 3.5 hour adventure around the "Magic City" we'll hit the historical highlights of Birmingham, AL. From the comforts of our intimate transportation we'll see the best of what this town has to offer and taste a few local treats along the way. To start we'll set our sights on the original rail lines and discuss Birmingham's origins. From there we'll make stops to learn about Birmingham's baseball history, the Civil Rights Movement and when the city was "The Industrial Capital Of the South." We might even head over to Legion Field, site of some 1996 Olympic soccer, or futbol, matches and Rickwood Field, oldest ballpark in America.
