I have lived in Birmingham, AL all my life… I will admit there isn’t a whole lot to do here, however there are museums, parks, & shops.
There are great sites to eat, theaters, & some events that are put on for the kids.
There is a lot of history with Birmingham & that is showcased heavily. If you aren’t a history buff, you genuinely won’t ever visit here. That is okay though, and living year round, I like my area… Birmingham has some of the best weather in the United States. I care about that I get four distinct seasons. I can have fall leaves change, the chance of snow, blooming flowers, & a sizzling summer time season. I don’t have any dire temperatures though. The highest my wonderful friend and I get is a few afternoons in the 90s & the lowest my wonderful friend and I get is a few nights in the 30s! A geothermal heat pump is how I get by in my afternoon to afternoon. The geothermal heat pump uses the existing heat energy in the ground & then pumps it indoors for a heating effect in the winter. The reverse happens in the summer. Think about it. The underground temperature in the summer time is always colder. Using that colder temperatures means I save cash no longer creating it myself with burning & churning of fossil fuels. Using existing heat energy is also much cheaper & cleaner for the indoor air quality. Most locations don’t have a heat pump due to getting too chilly in the winter. Birmingham doesn’t get chilly enough for that though.
