Birmingham, AL

Getting to Know Birmingham, AL

With a population of more than 200,000 in Birmingham alone and more than one million throughout the Birmingham-Hoover metropolitan area, Birmingham is the largest city in Alabama. The city was founded in 1871 and was named after Birmingham in the United Kingdom. The city's focus on steel production earned it the nickname of the Pittsburgh of the South.

Birmingham Apartments and Neighborhoods

To support the state's largest and diverse population, Birmingham offers a variety of places to rent your next apartment. Take a look at some of the best neighborhoods in Birmingham and find a hip spot near the college scene, or choose a suburban neighborhood with family friendly amenities close by. Some of our favorite neighborhoods include:

  • The Southside sits on Red Mountain, and its proximity to the University of Alabama attributes to the cultural diversity. It's a homosexual-friendly neighborhood where the gay pride parade starts each year.
  • Highland Park is just two miles from the business district, making it ideal for those wanting a short commute to work. The Highland Park Golf Course tends to drive rental prices up, but the location near UAB and entertainment hotspots makes it perfect for young professionals desiring a balance of work and play.

  • Five Points South is the entertainment center of Birmingham, about five minutes from downtown and highly walkable.  
  • Lakeview suits those who want to be close to the action but not in the Five Points atmosphere. This trendy neighborhood has a large corporate presence and residents can walk to entertainment venues such as the Alabama Ballet and the Terrific New Theater.
  • The Parkside District attracts sports enthusiasts since its amenities include Regions Field and Railroad Park. Residents here tend to be active and enjoy the outdoors.
