Someplace Special Everywhere You Go 

As the chamber of commerce director, I certainly can’t pick a favorite, but I can say that no matter what my family is looking to enjoy, Mountain Brook has it covered. Fine dining, fast casual, coffee, ice cream, pizza—it’s all here, and it’s all wonderful! 

Cherokee Bend 

I’m partial to Cherokee Bend, and I love enjoying the Irondale Furnace Trail on Stone River Road, our neighborhood sidewalks and playing on the new playground at the elementary school. It’s always a beautiful walk, but when the azaleas and dogwoods bloom in the spring, it’s just heavenly. 

Mountain Brook Holiday Parade 

The holiday parade marks the beginning of the Christmas season for my family, and it’s such a sweet reminder of just how special our city is. I love the marching band, the childrens’ floats, and who doesn’t love to see Santa arriving on that big, red fire truck?  

Mountain Brook World Series 

One of my favorite places to be in our city is at the ball fields while my two children play baseball! My son played in the Mountain Brook World Series last year with his rec league team on the day the new fields were dedicated, and we are so fortunate to have such amazing facilities where we can support our athletes! 

Mountain Brook Easter Egg Hunt 

A favorite Mountain Brook memory of mine is organizing our neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt a few years ago and seeing that tradition continue today! We gather on Good Friday afternoon in a field on our street, and the children hunt eggs and play. Invariably, we end up ordering pizza to the field and visiting with neighbors throughout the evening. It’s such a special way to start our Easter weekend.
