Select Option


On this three hour WALKING AND RIDING adventure around the "Magic City" we'll hit the historical highlights of Birmingham, AL. We'll see the best of what this town has to offer and taste a few local treats along the way. To start, we'll set our sights on the original rail lines and discuss Birmingham's origins. From there we'll make stops to learn about Birmingham's baseball history, the Civil Rights Movement and when the city was "The Industrial Capital Of the South." We might even head over to Legion Field, site of some 1996 Olympic soccer, or futbol, matches and Rickwood Field, oldest ballpark in America.

We learned a lot about the history of Birmingham from a century ago to the present. Tour Guide was very informative and answered all our questions. Highly recommend this tour for visitors and locals.

My son and I enjoyed going through and learning about the Sloss furnaces. My wife was fascinated with the historical knowledge of our guide. We had a great time and would love to go again.

My husband and I enjoyed the whole tour. Clay's knowledge of the Birmingham area was fantastic! We especially enjoyed the Sloss Furnace tour. Having lived in the Birmingham area 40 years ago, we didn't fully take advantage of the history of the area back then. I would recommend Red Clay Tours to anyone visiting Birmingham.
