Things to do in Tuscaloosa

Why the One & Only? A brand is more than copy for an ad, a logo, an identity mark. A brand tells a story. For the city of Tuscaloosa, a new story is being told. Not one of SEC football, 16 national championships, or Bear Bryant, but of the Druid City, Dinah Washington, and the city’s 5 major bodies of water. The one and only Tuscaloosa in the world has a story to share, and that story is being shared with locals and travelers alike. Incorporated in the year 1819, the city of Tuscaloosa is rooted in history. Located along the riverbanks of the Black Warrior River, the city is home to The University of Alabama, but also so much more. Tuscaloosa’s new open-source brand serves to tell the stories of the city. “Tuscaloosa – The One & Only” not only demonstrates that the city is the only with its name in the world, but it sheds light on the direction the city is heading. Our hope is that visitors and locals will to continue to contribute to the story of the one and only Tuscaloosa, sharing their favorite spots and attractions, and strengthening the love and heritage for our city.
