I didn't get your joke at first, until I saw my mistake. Apparently I had a long New Years celebration.

But that does remind me that it will also be the 150th anniversary of Gettysburg, and the Emancipation Proclamation.

Bamanblazerfan will have a busy year.

Is there a more self-loathing city/environs than the Birmingham area?


Amen Smaug. I haven't lived in B'ham for 15 years but would love to move back some day, hopefully when my twins enter UAB in 6 years. I'd most likely live downtown, like I do here in Mobile.

Amen.

I've been trying to get back for the past three years with varying degrees of failure.

When I think of cities I'd like to visit, Birmingham isn't in my list. To me there's just not enough worth traveling for. No pro sports teams. Not a big military history. Sure, there's the civil rights stuff, but not too sure how many people would come from afar to walk through a museum that's bankrupt. I just don't see a big tourist draw.

They mentioned it because the political correctness side of it outweighs the factual side of it.

Best part of Birmingham is its people and our Southern Hospitality, that amd the amazing food and beautiful churches.

Southern Hospitality isn't what it's cracked up to be.

I disagree.

I've been several times, and think it's a great museum. The first time I went, I fully expected to be bludgeoned with white guilt, but it wasn't like that at all.

Not saying it isn't a good museum, because I wouldn't know, but I don't believe that it by itself is a travel destination reason.

And certainly not the 6th best destination overall because of the Civil Rights Commemoration.

Well, the Today Show disagrees.

Yep, & I don't watch the Today Show or NBC.

FWIW:

The other destinations that made Maxwell's list were Miami, Florida, Pittsburgh, Penn., Marseille, France, and the countries of Nicaragua, and Croatia.
