Alabama — Travel Tips

  • Flights connecting to Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport can be made from destinations around the world
  • Car rental is by far the most convenient way to see the state and its many attractions outside of the city centers
  • Avoid the topics of racial issues and the Confederacy when chatting with locals as there are still strong feelings routed in years of history
  • Eight huge visitor centers are located around the perimeter of Alabama and in its main cities with excellent brochures, maps, and self-tour information available
