Avondale, Woodlawn & Crestwood

The Avondale, Woodlawn, and Crestwood neighborhoods are so close to the city center, you can almost reach out and touch it. And yet they feel like a world away. There’s a laid-back vibe to these sister 'hoods that sets them apart — the perfect blend of urb and suburb. Some mark them as ground zero for the Magic City’s recent renaissance, and much of what’s going on here frequently lands Birmingham on the national stage. Jam-packed with great places to grab a bite or a beer, catch a gig by local and national touring bands, and shop! New and used vinyl, funky antiques and furniture, vintage clothes, art and objets d’art can all be found a hop, skip, or five-minute car ride away. Slowing down more your speed? There’s family-friendly parks a plenty, coffee shops, and even a speakeasy-style bar to wet your whistle.
