I love people with reading comprehension issues. The OP already said he wasn't interested in Nashville, having already visited it.

Memphis. It's somewhat bigger, has better food, and is more tourist-friendly.

Birmingham residents can't even pronounce their own city correctly (it's supposed to be burr-ming-um, not burr-ming-hamm).

We can pronounce it however we want. And, get it right, it's BUH-me-HAM.

At any rate, the size difference is negligible so I don't see how that should be a deciding factor. Birmingham has gotten quite a lot of good press for its foodie scene so I do not believe Memphis has the easy win in that category. More touristy? Probably but that isn't always the best thing. Birmingham is for sure not tourist unfriendly.

Alabama Adventures isn't the best water park now, but it has been bought out by the Koch family who know how to run an amusement park and they plan on adding the "dry" side amusement rides back to the park soon. But the water side is currently up and running.

Memphis easily for me, but it depends what you're looking for, I suppose. Food is much better in Memphis, and it has a far greater cultural impact.
