Once known as the Pittsburgh of the South, Birmingham, Alabama, is so much more than the steel and mining town it used to be. Located in the Jones Valley, Birmingham is a mid-sized city that is now a leader in business and banking. The downtown area is experiencing a rebirth and has lofts and condos for those who prefer life in the city center. One of its suburbs, Highland Park, was named as a 2011 America's Great Place by the American Planning Association.
