Gardendale Area Help

Coming to the Bham/Gardendale area this coming week. Can anyone tell me how far it is from that area to like the science center, the Gallaria, Sloss.

Also looking for a good local pizza place in the area also.

Thanks so much!

Are you staying with someone in Gardendale? Hotel?

This depends on the time of day and traffic. Generally, though, to McWane SC, CRI, Sloss, (these are all downtown) it is about 25 minutes. About 12-15 miles).

To the Galleria & area (shopping) it is further...about 25 miles (40 minutes?) by interstate.

I'll let someone else take the pizza question. I have been here a long time, and i can't think of any pizza I LOVE in either of those areas.

Welcome to Alabama. Let us know if you have other questions.

I live in the Gardendale area. The time estimates in the previous posts are accurate.

For pizza in Gardendale, Pasquale's is my choice. The place is a bit of a dive, but the food is great. If you want to try something in Birmningham, click on this link - tripadvisor.com/Restaurants-g30375-Birmingha…

On the Filter Restaurants By menu, select Pizza. You will find several local places like Cosmo's, Tortuga's and Davenports. I have not tried any of those personally, but have heard good things. Salvatore's is one on the list that I have had and like. I prefer their Stromboli and Calzones to their pizza, though.

Hope you have a great visit to our area.

For pizza, I can recommend Cosmos (5 Points South) and

Tortugas (one near the Galleria http://www.tortugaspizza.com/index.html ).
