Roll Tide! At University Downs, you’re right next to the University of Alabama—one of the nation’s best higher educational institutions. Dubbed “The City of Champions,” Tuscaloosa also has one of the most successful college football teams with the Alabama Crimson Tide attracting tens of thousands of people per game at Bryant Denny Stadium. Other colleges such as Stillman College and Shelton State Community College are only short drives away—and the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport is only an hour northeast of Tuscaloosa up Interstate 20.

To delve more into the history of the Crimson Tide, explore the Paul W. Bryant Museum dedicated to legendary coach Bear Bryant. The University of Alabama campus also offers endless cultural activities including performing arts at the Coleman Coliseum, Tuscaloosa Amphitheater, Bama Theatre, and Moody Concert Hall (where the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra plays). Many festivals and events take place throughout the year and the city constantly thrives with students who frequent its coffee shops, restaurants, and nightlife.

North of the University of Alabama, the beautiful Black Warrior River passes through Tuscaloosa where many parks line the river and spread throughout the city. Right on the bank of the river, the Tuscaloosa Farmers' Market takes place every Saturday morning in walking distance from University Downs. Check out the historic Capitol Park and stroll through The University of Alabama Arboretum. If you’re feeling more adventurous, take a tour of the Mercedes-Benz plant, walk through the 19th century Italianate Jemison-Van de Graaff Mansion, and see some great exhibitions at the Alabama Museum of Natural History and the Tuscaloosa Museum of Art.
