If you are searching for family activities head to the various child-friendly attractions. Snap photos, admire the exhibits and learn about the variety of species at Birmingham Zoo.
When it’s time escape the city, plan a trip to the nearby outdoor areas. When the sun is out, explore the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, one of the places where locals come to spend time outdoors.
If you're a sports fan, don’t miss the opportunity to see Irondale favorites, the UAB Blazers, doing battle at Legion Field. On match days the area around the stadium becomes a sea of green, white and gold, as college football fans come together to cheer on their beloved team.
To make the most of Irondale, think about booking a room at one of the area’s charming bed and breakfast or hotel options. Whether you’re staying for a night or a few weeks it’s hard to go past the Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham SE/Liberty Park, the Holiday Inn Birmingham-Airport, and the popular Clarion Hotel.
