About Birmingham

seal_of_birminghamBirmingham is located in north-central Alabama, surrounded by the wooded foothills of the Appalachian mountain range. The Birmingham-metro area has a population of more than 1 million, with an abundance of housing options, entertainment, shopping, sports and the arts. It is a major center of banking, health care, biotechnology, education, and insurance in the Southeast. Itis less than a day's drive from Gulf of Mexico beaches or the great mountain ranges of the Southeast.

Birmingham offers a balance of suburban convenience with the arts, culture, music, and diversity one would expect from an urban center.
