SO, I was picking up my friend (who works at Alabama Power) for lunch and while I was meandering through downtown I noticed that there were PLENTY of people that would be considered "tourists". I've never doubted that Birmingham is capable of being a tourist trap, but I was actually surprised by the number of people that I saw walking around the Civil Rights District and taking pictures, unfolding their maps, and feeding the parking meters.

I'm not talking about people that look at the downtown map and think quickly "alright! this way!". I'm talking about seeing people standing on the sidewalk for more than 10 min and planning where they wanted to go.

It was a very pleasing sight!
