About Tuscaloosa, AL

Tuscaloosa's Southern charm is irresistible – at least to luxury car-maker Mercedes-Benz, who chose the area for its sole U.S. manufacturing plant. The county's thriving business climate is boosted by a highly educated work force, thanks to the University of Alabama, the state’s largest university, and a quality public school system. Its cultural side is supported by its 22 recognized historic districts.
