As you may have noticed, Birmingham has been getting a lot of press lately and seems to be becoming a bit of a tourist destination.

The New York Times just suggested what one would do with 36 hours in the magic city and while the San Francisco Chronicle only gave readers one day, it was packed with activities! The Washington Post recently highlighted our fair city in their travel section, touting Birmingham as “one of the best vacation destinations you’ve never considered”.

In each of these articles, a visit to Pepper Place makes the list. Pepper Place was ahead of its time when it comes to urban revitalization and nothing makes us happier than seeing the growth that has happened all around us and the recognition Birmingham is receiving! We love being a destination for tourists, but more importantly we want to make locals proud.
