4 comments on “Tuscaloosa”

I reside in Tuscaloosa, Al where you have to be a die-hard fan of football. The phrase “Roll Tide” has to be a part of your vocabulary and you are prepared to yell this phrase often (even daily during football season). Also, handle all errands in advance before the start of home games as traffic is horrible.

Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is a wonderful place. Tuscaloosa, home to the University of Alabama, is full of history and rich tradition. Tuscaloosa is a charming city that is full of kind and generous people. Though it is not great in size, there are plenty of places to visit in Tuscaloosa.

Here in Tuscaloosa, we are known to be a tourist attraction due to our city being a well-known college football town. Due to this reason, most of the time, we have traffic problems that affect the roads, especially downtown Tuscaloosa. I should also note that whenever you’re in a mood for some good food, head on over to DePalma’s Italian cafe. Their pasta is the best.

Tuscaloosa is a busy and exciting college town! The University of Alabama and the Mercedes plant just down the road generate a large amount of our revenue. Both the county and the city school systems are outstanding. The economy is strong especially when the Tide is winning during football season.
