The Birmingham Zoo is a must-visit when you’re in the area. This fantastic zoo features almost 550 animals from 6 continents, and is the perfect place to learn more about the different species found here.

See animals like lions, giraffes, elephants, sea lions, a jaguar, and more. Visit the Trails of Africa area, the Children’s Zoo, and so much more. You’ll need to spend the whole day here to see it all!

In addition to all the animals, you’ll also find a train, a carousel, delicious restaurants, behind-the-scenes experiences, and special events throughout the year.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Alabama!
