Every college football fan knows Tuscaloosa is home to the University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide. A bustling city with 30,000 college students, Tuscaloosa offers a beautiful campus with a vibrant downtown and a "Roll Tide" atmosphere. Stay at one of our Tuscaloosa hotels and be near it all!
While visiting this lively city, find the time to check out these popular attractions:
Be prepared for sensory overload when you visit University of Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium. When 100,000 diehard fans chant “Roll Tide, Roll!” your seat shakes and you will have a sudden urge for an icy cold beverage. The stadium’s location in the heart of the campus makes it ideal for pre- and post- game activities.
Rich with Crimson Tide tradition and a short walk from Bryant-Denny Stadium, the Paul W. Bryant Museum commemorates the Tide’s long-time head coach, Paul “Bear” Bryant, and displays a collection of Alabama football trophies, championship rings and movies.
Although Tuscaloosa is in a football-frenzy much of the year, the less sporty crowd should grab a front row seat at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater. Located a stone’s throw away from downtown, this amphitheater sits beautifully on 15 acres amidst the banks of the Black Warrior River and guarantees “no bad seat in the house.”
You also could lose yourself in an afternoon of fun at the Children’s Hands-on Museum. The museum offers children the chance to act out in miniature versions of real-life businesses and get a hands-on experience with local history.
Continue your hands-on/history day at the Mercedes-Benz US International Visitor Center and Factory Tour. Begin with the museum and finish the day off with an informative tour of the production line and a picture inside one of the vehicles.
After a day of football or taking in the sights, relax at R&R Cigars for a local vibe and deck/patio out back. If you’re still craving sports, the large plasma TVs and leather theatre seating will suit you just fine.
Come and enjoy an experience that offers the best of the Old South and New South. Choice Hotels in Tuscaloosa awaits to welcome you into one of the most hospitable cities in the country.
