Take in all Tuscaloosa has to offer this fall
The West Alabama city of Tuscaloosa is steeped in history. The city was named after the great Choctaw Chief Black Warrior, and it was incorporated into Alabama’s territory a day before Congress admitted Alabama as a state in 1819. Tuscaloosa also served as the capital of Alabama from 1826-1846. After 1846, Alabama’s capital was moved to Montgomery.
Around fall every year, Tuscaloosa has a number of in-state and out-of-state visitors, and if you visit the region, why not take time to soak in all that the region has to offer. Tuscaloosa wows visitors with its history, quaint places to stay, Southern cuisine and nature preserves. Here are a few must-dos when visiting the region:
WHAT TO SEE:
Moundville Archaeological Park
The University of Alabama’s Moundville Archaeological Park is one of the nation’s premier Native American heritage sites. It is located 13 miles south of the city of Tuscaloosa on the Black Warrior River and contains panoramic views, a museum and a campground. The museum paints the historic picture of what life was like in the 14th century, and many artifacts are on display for visitors to see how advanced society was during that time.
