ALABAMA ROOTS
A
long the banks of the Black Warrior River, the city of Tuscaloosa grows from roots that stretch back to when Native Americans made the area their home. Named after the Choctaw chieftain Tuskaloosa, the town is less than 60 miles from Birmingham, just off I-20, and offers plenty to see and do—and eat. One of the must-stops is Dreamland Bar-B-Que. Making top 10 lists of best barbeque year after year, this ribs heaven opened in 1958 with a menu of only ribs, rib sandwiches, and white bread. Whether your clients are looking for a laid-back experience or the rush of a crowd, Tuscaloosa has it. Climb aboard the Bama Belle paddlewheel boat for a leisurely cruise down the river. The 90-foot boat can accommodate up to 150. For the partiers in your groups, steer them to the area known as the Strip near the University of Alabama. Especially on game days, the street is packed. Tailgating at Bryant-Denny Stadium is also a longstanding tradition and has become known as one of the best places to munch a brat before a game. Also near Tuscaloosa: The Moundville Archeological Park and the Jones Museum, which has more than 200 Native American artifacts that help chronicle the lives of those who lived here more than 500 years ago. During the first full week of October, the area’s Native American heritage is celebrated during the Moundville Native American Festival. Performers, craftsmen, and artists help bring forth the heritage of the area.
