including Birmingham. (See full segment.)

Editor Kate Maxwell mentioned Birmingham’s 50th anniversary of the 1963 civil rights movement events, along with the affordability of local hotels.

Sadly, if you visit Jetsetter.com and search for “Birmingham,” you get … nothing. Pittsburgh (“The Birmingham of the North”) also turns up nothing on the site.

When asked about this oversight, Maxwell said by email, “We’re always looking for new destinations for Jetsetter and hope to add some properties down South in the near future — Birmingham is definitely on our radar.”

So when booking your vacation in Birmingham, listen to Jetsetter.com, but don’t use Jetsetter.com?!
