For some reason, many people think it is always hot and humid in Alabama.
Summer can be brutal, but winter is my favorite time of year. The days are in the low to mid fifties, but nights are cold. We get very little snow, but it is often near freezing at night. On those cold nights, we want to head someplace where it is warm. We could always stay home and enjoy the heat of the furnace, but that’s no fun. Birmingham has an excellent escape room experience that offers a few different variations on their escape room experience. The HVAC is perfect, and you can get a lot of laughs for the evening. The clues and puzzles are a challenge when trying your hand at The Fourth Samurai, Blackbeard’s Treasure, or World’s Collide. You can head over to Escape Live Birmingham and check out the Shelby Boys and Peaky Blinders. They even have a speakeasy bar where you can relax in the comfort of their HVAC and enjoy a few drinks with your friends. Winter in Birmingham doesn’t need to be boring. I especially enjoy checking out the karaoke in different areas. I think someday I could pass for a real singer, if I didn’t have such a horrible voice, but no one tells you that unless it’s your friends, but I don’t listen to them. We find plenty of things to do where I can excel, even if it isn’t in my escape artistry or my ability to sing. We end up finding other things that will occupy our cold winter nights in Birmingham, AL.
