Music, art, entertainment and more - From world-class entertainment at the Alys Stephens Center, to exquisite collections at the Birmingham Museum of Art, from the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival to the historic Lyric and Alabama Theaters, Birmingham offers a surprising spectrum of entertainment and enrichment. Birmingham is also known for its exceptional restaurants, locally grown produce markets, and night spots, its proximity to beautiful beaches and peaceful mountain settings, and its relatively low cost of living.
Recreation and Activities - Talk with people in Birmingham and you’ll find a surprising number of them who moved away, experienced living in larger, more hectic cities, and moved back to the simplicity and quality of Birmingham living. The Campus Green is at the heart of UAB life, achored by an award-winning Campus Recreation Center, dining commons and inviting residence halls. The 150,000-square-foot Recreation Center features an indoor pool, an oval running track, basketball courts, a multi-purpose court, a climbing wall, cardio fitness areas and well-equipped weight-lifting areas.
