Birmingham, located at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains, is the most populous city in the state of Alabama and the county seat of Jefferson County.

At the height of the country's era of production, the city grew so fast in population that it earned the nickname "Magic City". The nickname stuck when they discovered that it was also the only city in the world where the three raw materials used to produce steel (coal, limestone and iron ore) occur naturally within a radius of ten kilometers.

In recent decades, Birmingham has undergone a major renaissance and has become a hub for advertising, medical research, banking, construction and services companies. Today, the Magic City is considered one of the liveliest cities in the country because of the vibrant city center, the evolving loft community and the world-class culinary scene. In fact, Birmingham was voted the No. 1 emerging food city by Zagat in 2016.
