Where to snack:

Alabama Peanut Co.

Deep in Peanut District of Birmingham, you can find a cobble-stoned street and an old shop on Morris Ave that sells all kinds of peanuts (boiled, roasted, flavored). It’s an iconic venue to see and a must-stop when you’re in town.

If you fall in love with their peanuts as most folks do, you can even have them shipped to your house!
