With ample history, culture and southern charm, Tuscaloosa isn’t just any college town.
Our Tuscaloosa hotels are nearby to the University of Alabama, so you can stroll around campus, skim rare books at the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library, catch a Crimson Tide game at Bryant-Denny Stadium, visit the football-centric Paul W. Bryant Museum, or tee-off at the University’s Golf Course.
History buffs at our accommodations in Tuscaloosa will enjoy the Old Tavern and The Murphy African-American Museum, while students of natural history can explore dinosaurs and fossils at the Alabama Museum of Natural History or see the Hodges Meteorite, the only meteorite known to have struck a person.
Outdoor enthusiasts might opt for a jog or a round of disc golf at Bowers Park, or even explore nature trails and ancient Mississippian culture at Moundville Archaeological Park. Lake Lurleen State Park, not far from our Tuscaloosa accommodations, offers biking, fishing and swimming.
The Kentuck Art Center in historic Northport is an easy drive from our hotels in Tuscaloosa, as is Tannehill Ironworks State Park, where you can visit craft shops in restored pioneer cabins. Afterwards, enjoy southern cuisine with riverfront views at the Cypress Inn or blue-plate specials at the 15th Street Diner.
