Birmingham, AL


  • Pepper Place Market: your typical Farmer’s Market, only some of the booths are local makers
  • Red Cat Coffee Shop: super cozy coffee shop that gets crazy busy during the Market
  • Railroad Park: large park in downtown right across the street from Regions Baseball Field
  • Birmingham Museum of Art: we were pleasantly surprised to find a Rural Studio piece by our future professor Xavier Vendrell
  • Abroms Engel Institute for the Visual Arts (UAB): weird modern art
  • Melt: the most expensive ($8-$12), but best grilled cheese I’ve ever had
  • Alabama Goods: basic Birmingham t-shirts and Alabama gifts
  • Sloss Furnaces: a great place to learn about how iron is manufactured or just take cool photos
  • Magic City Sweet Ice: whether you call it sweet ice, Italian ice, or water ice, their flavor selection was very impressive and delicious
  • Seeds Coffee: I had no idea what a mint chocolate tea latte was, but after going to Seeds, I now know how great tea lattes are
  • Vecchia: “traditional” Italian market located in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover
