Traveling from Birmingham.

Southwest Airlines is proud to serve Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.

Leave behind the Heart of Dixie for America’s Heartland when you fly with Southwest. Though some may see part of the region as flyover country, visitors will quickly discover the natural beauty, artsy communities, and friendly hospitality that make the Midwest a worthy vacation destination. Experience the breathtaking scenery of the Midwest, including wide open prairie fields, lush forests, and sparkling blue lakes. Throughout the region, you’ll find both major metropolises and small towns with inventive farm-to-table dining, creative local festivals, and a multicultural makeup that’s reflected in heritage museums, historical landmarks, and more.

If the Great Lakes aren’t your ideal waterfront getaway, then head further southeast of Birmingham to the Atlantic Coast. Enjoy your days on the sandy white beaches overlooking the vast ocean waters, where the only thing holding your attention is a good book or the waves crashing onto the shore. If you need to get out on the water, you can try watersport activities such as parasailing, surfing, and jet skiing.

For the traveler whose ideal vacation involves cooler temperatures, a trip on Southwest to the snowy mountains might be the perfect getaway. Bundle up for a day on the slopes, where you can try downhill skiing and snowboarding. For a more low-key afternoon, stay close to the lodge and enjoy views of the snow-capped mountains. Discover neighboring peaks that possess hiking and backpacking paradises. Grab your boots and hit the trails where you’ll see pristine rivers, crystal clear lakes, and tree-studded ridges. No matter where you end up, there’s an abundance of world-class scenery to keep you busy.
