Sightseeing

Tuscaloosa River Market is open on Saturdays from 7am-12. It’s right on the river across from UA’s campus and depending on the time of year they offer fresh baked goods, homemade soaps, plants, and fresh homegrown produce. It offers a nice paved sidewalk to walk along the river and down a little ways off the path is a small playground with a nice river view. Definitely one of our favorites. Some people bring bicycles, scooters, or just enjoy the walk.

The beautiful Lake Lurleen offers not only campsites, fishing, and paddling board rentals – it also provides a sandy beach that children love! The water is clean and refreshing, and there is a sectioned off zone in which it is absolutely safe to splash and swim. The sand is also a perfect playground! Sometimes we just like to go just to have a picnic and play in the sand. On site, you can also find bathrooms and some picnic tables to rest, eat and gain some new energy.
