I was driving through and decided to stop in. Didn't go up to the lookout, because I didn't want to pay haha. But nice views of Birmingham, and Vulcan has a nice butt. 😂

The Vulcan statue is the centerpiece of a very nice part of the great overlook of Birmingham City.

Neat to learn the history and see how the statue was made. The lookout is nice but if you don't like heights be warned. The lookout is a metal grate walkway which you can see through.

There's a small museum on site that offers loads of historical information. The view from the statue is the best in Birmingham.

I thought it was just ok. I didn't pay the $6 to ride the elevator up. I only walked around the grounds. Nice for a picnic area. I honestly felt like it wasn't worth the detour from my route.
