While your event calendar may look different this summer, there is still plenty to do around the Magic City. From date nights to adventurous family outings, there’s an activity for everyone to enjoy this summer. Let’s get to planning! Here are five ideas for a fun-filled Birmingham summer outing.
5 Ideas for a Fun Summer Outing in Birmingham
Enjoy a Sunset Kayak Adventure
Load up the family and head to the beautiful Cahaba River for a relaxing, guided full moon kayak trip. This two-hour expedition is the perfect activity for all experience levels and is sure to become a family tradition for years to come. The cost is $35 per paddler; arrive by 7:30 p.m., and you’ll be on the water by 8 p.m. Availability for reservations begins in August, and all ages are welcome. Book your sunset adventure with Treeline Expeditions quickly, as time slots and capacity are limited.
Big Screen Wednesdays at Avondale Brewing Company
Pack up your favorite lawn chair or blanket, and head down to Avondale Brewing Company each Wednesday night to view a movie on their big outdoor screen. Enjoy the warm summertime weather as you sip on your favorite Avondale brew. Check out their Instagram story each Monday to vote on the movie you want to see the following Wednesday.
Have a Family Outing at Regions Field
Enjoy the amenities at Regions Field in a brand new way. The Summer Event Series at Regions Field is underway and provides fun, family-friendly activities every weekend through August 7. Cheer on the over/under 35 baseball teams of the Central Alabama Baseball Association and Birmingham Metro Baseball League each Thursday and Friday night. Admission is free, but reservations are required as the capacity in Regions Field is limited. Every Saturday (except for July 4), attendees can kick back and enjoy Babe Ruff’s Saturday Cinema series. Sit on the field or in the stands, and watch a classic film as you chow down on your favorite ballpark snacks. Regions Field’s highly anticipated fireworks show also makes its return on select dates. It’s going to be a summer series to remember!
Have a Girls’ Night Out with Birmingham Pedal Tours
Grab your best gals and hop on Birmingham’s very first group pedal bike with Birmingham Pedal Tours. Take a private tour with your crew and see the sights of Avondale, Pepper Place, Lakeview or downtown Birmingham by bike. The tour lasts two hours and includes stops at your favorite watering holes, including Good People Brewing Co., Carrigan’s Public House, Paper Doll (previously Tavern on 1st), Encore Rouge, the Pizitz and more. Whether you’ve lived in the Magic City your whole life or you’re new here, this tour is a must for everyone.
Chow Down During a Progressive Food Truck Dinner
The food truck scene in Birmingham has exploded over the past two years, and we are totally okay with it. Some of the tastiest bites in the South are found at local food trucks all around our city. With the help of Food Truck Finder, you can turn date night into a fun, progressive dinner that will take you throughout the Magic City. See the sights, enjoy some delicious food, and spend time with the one you love — that’s a summer win/win/win.
Enjoy the long days of summer, Birmingham!
