This is a local favorite with delicious pops made from local, fresh ingredients. There's something for everyone, even if you're on a diet! Elizabeth's favorite is the avocado pop, while Jared's is the plain chocolate.

Our favorite coffee shop. Cozy atmosphere, great food and beverages. We recommend the gouda grits and an Abyssinian latte. Located in the middle of Pepper Place, a cute spot where you'll find the farmers market on Saturday mornings.

One of the best fine dining places in Birmingham. Social hour in the bar is from 4-7 on weekdays if you want to stop by after a work conference. The pork chop is a must-have, so stop by Friday lunch or Sunday evening for a deal. Perfect spot for a fancy date night--be sure to tell them it's a special occasion!

One of our favorite less-popular trails to hike. A pretty sunny, but easy incline to start but head further back into dense foliage as you get closer to the waterfall. There's also usually a nice pool at the bottom if you're up for some swimming! Free entrance!
