It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of city life in Birmingham. All of the fast-paced entertainment can be fun and exciting, but if you are looking for a place to step back from it all and simply relax, look no further than downtown Homewood. Homewood as a whole is a pretty quiet part of Birmingham, but right around 18th Street South, the mood is especially calm. It may feel like you have stepped back into the small town you grew up in – or at least saw on TV. We took a walk through this charming area and got a glimpse at a peaceful afternoon in downtown Homewood.
