Tuscaloosa is a city with so much culture, history and tradition! It is best known as the home of The University of Alabama, which brings a fantastic energy to this city during football season when 80,000 fans pour in every home-game weekend. However, there’s a lot to see and do, even in the off-season, plus Birmingham is just a short 45-minute drive away. Attractions such as the Alabama Museum of Natural History, the Tuscaloosa Museum of Art, and Lake Lurleen State Park entertain visitors attending football games and traveling to the city for family-friendly vacations. Tuscaloosa is western Alabama’s largest center for commerce, industry, and education.
