We are coming to visit a family member and will be staying at Embassy Suites(downtown, I think). We will arrive on a Wed evening and have all day to sightsee on that Thursday. Most of our weekend ( Fri, Sat, and Sun ) will be spent with Family until about 5 or 6 in the evening. We have never been to Alabama before and want to make the most of our trip, with gas prices rising it may be a while before we get to take another trip. So any suggestions on museums, local food, shopping, etc. that is a must see? We are on a budget, so nothing too extravagent! Also, what is the weather like that time of year? We are very excited about visiting Birmingham and want to make it one to remember. Thanks!
