No true Bama fan would dare say a bad word about Bryant-Denny. It's a landmark. Our trademark. The home of the Crimson Tide!
But, I will note that the parking, nrw rules about what and how you can bring things in, and the no alcohol policy are pretty annoying. I think those could be improved, but the stadium itself is what T-town is all about. Roll Tide.

Museum dedicated to the famous football coach Paul "Bear" Bryant.
This is full of University of Alabama football memorabilia. Not just a tribute to a great college football coach, but a great history of Alabama's football tradition. Don't miss it if you go to Tuscaloosa.

We have been to several concerts at the Amp. Very comfortable seating, plenty of room. Acoustics are great and the location on the banks of the Black Warrior River is very scenic. Concession prices are high, but that would be OK if the service was quicker. We were at last Sunday's Rod Stewart/Cyndi Lauper concert and several windows had registers go down which caused delays. Several hotels and many restaurants and bars nearby for before or after (except on Sunday nights) the concerts.

The only of its kind outside of Germany, this vistor center has exhibits on the history of the Mercedes-Benz and offers tours of a manufacturing plant.
Even though one needs to schedule in advance for the twice weekly tours, it is very worthwhile. We all learned a lot and enjoyed the tour given by Annie who obviously takes great pride in working for Mercedes-Benz. The area is immense. A highlight of our vacation.

Stopped in for 90 minutes during an outing with 56 others. Always wanted to go and see how Bear Bryant, and others, built the Crimson Tide powerhouse. The museum was similar to Sam Walton's in Bentonville, Arkansas....Large enough to cover everything, but small enough to be easily viewed in a couple of hours. The 10 minute movie is a MUST SEE!. Current era memorabilia is up-to-date with lots of game videos and Saban era touches. This is worth the trip.

This was a very nice and well kept park. Capitol park is a wonderful setting for picture. They columns and remains of the old capitol were absolutely fascinating. The details that were on this building were interesting. This park was just 2 blocks from the Home2Suites Hotel.

While Greek and Roman architecture inspired the antebellum South's wealthy class, as the War Between the States drew near many of them looked to other sources of inspiration. This mansion is an outstanding example of Italianate architecture in the very grand style. From its cupola-capped roof to the oversized windows, it is a tremendous crowd pleaser, evoking images of gentlemen in frock coats, ladies in bustles and luncheon on the lawn. The rooms are large and it is easy to envision them hosting an elegant soiree or a serious political meeting. Perhaps it is because the past seems so vivid that ghost-sightings have become a part of the mansion's history. When possible, pair your visit to this gilded-age home with one to the ante-bellum Battle Friedman house just a few steps down the street.

Come enjoy one of the most breathtaking collections of fine art in America, nestled on the banks of the Black Warrior River. The Westervelt Collection embodies primitive, fine and decorative arts from around the world. Experience history anew as you travel from the heart of the Americas to the Far East in original masterpieces.
Located in the former headquarters of Jack Warner's Gulf States Paper Company (now the Westervelt Company), the museum is open to the public at no charge. Security is tight (due to its location in an operating business office). One has the impression of wandering thru their own private collection. There is no time limit. It is not a place for noisy children - or noisy adults - LOL. The works are wonderful.
Bonus: Jack Warner designed the building to resemble a sprawling Japanese temple, pavilion, and grounds. The building alone is worth the trip, only minutes from the UA campus. Did I mention its all free?

Food is obviously the main reason for a farmer's market. Buying locally grown produce helps local farmers and the local economy. Plus, the homemade pies and cakes, jams and jellies, pickles and chow-chow are just awesome. Then there are craftsman made items like plaques and jewelry that make Tuscaloosa Farmer's Market the place to be, especially on Saturday mornings.
