Overview

The 2018 season is upon us and this year we are adding a broad collection of daytime historic tours! Churches, the historic city center, a civil rights tour, theaters both here and past, an architecture tour...and of course, in the evenings the ever popular Birmingham Ghost Walk! The historic tours are themed by month and the Ghost Walk will continue to be a broad look at all the dark and hidden history of downtown.

David was our guide and he was great! I've lived in Birmingham my entire life and found out so many things we didnt know! Especially the YMCA downtown! It's crazy, the tour is definitely a must do.
