Birmingham : Michelin's recommendations
Alabama's largest city, Birmingham is laid out in an orderly grid of numbered streets that crisscross the city's three interstate highways (I-20, I-65 and I-465 intersect here). Many of Birmingham's star attractions lie within walking distance of each other around downtown; don't miss the Five Points South area, a revitalized 1890s shopping, strolling and entertainment district near the University of Alabama campus. Pedestrians-only Cobb Lane, a charming block near Thirteenth Avenue South, features restaurants, art galleries and bars.
