Senior discounts, often as much as 50% off, are offered to those 62 and above.

Health care

Birmingham, Alabama is a metropolitan area and offers many options for medical care. Some of the top facilities that serve the city include the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital, Princeton Baptist Medical Center, and St. Vincent’s Birmingham.

Senior activities

The city of Birmingham has a rich history and there are many important sites and landmarks that reflect its storied past. For a true taste of the American South, be sure not to miss Birmingham’s annual BBQ & Blues Festival, a charity event hosted by Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q — an Alabama staple. Kelly Ingram Park, a site integral to the civil rights movement, is one of Birmingham’s significant historical locations. The park features statues of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as well as other celebrated civil rights figures, along with sculptures dedicated to the movement’s history. Birmingham’s Vulcan Park and Museum features the largest cast-iron sculpture in the world: a towering representation of Vulcan, the Roman god, created in 1904 as a tribute to the city’s role in the iron industry. The park features 10 acres of green space as well as an interactive history museum with rotating events.
