I was driving through and decided to stop in. Didn't go up to the lookout, because I didn't want to pay haha. But nice views of Birmingham, and Vulcan has a nice butt. 😂

The Vulcan statue is the centerpiece of a very nice part of the great overlook of Birmingham City.

I concur about the butt. Even if you don't pay to go up there are nice views of the city from the platform. You have to pay for a small museum too.

Neat to learn the history and see how the statue was made. The lookout is nice but if you don't like heights be warned. The lookout is a metal grate walkway which you can see through.

There's a small museum on site that offers loads of historical information. The view from the statue is the best in Birmingham.

I thought it was just ok. I didn't pay the $6 to ride the elevator up. I only walked around the grounds. Nice for a picnic area. I honestly felt like it wasn't worth the detour from my route.
