And a Breakfast of Champions at the Best Family Restaurant in Town
Historically known as “Oak City,” Tuscaloosa got its nickname from the towering oak trees that have lined many of the city’s streets since 1819. Downtown Tuscaloosa is easy to tour by foot or bike and offers all the quaint charm of a small-town main street, including historic storefronts, unique shopping opportunities and plenty of gorgeous backdrops for family photos or selfies.
For something a little more tranquil, The Tuscaloosa Riverwalk features 4.2 miles of paved, leisurely paths that meander through quiet woods along the southern bank of the Black Warrior River—so lovely and accessible!
A few more Tuscaloosa treasures:
- Paul W. Bryant Museum
- The Bama Theater
- Alabama Museum of Natural History
- Tuscaloosa Amphitheater
- Mercedes-Benz US International Visitor Center/Museum
- Capitol Park
- The Tuscaloosa Farmers’ Market
- Jemison-Van de Graaff Mansion
There’s much more to see and do in Tuscaloosa, so make sure to stop by Metro Diner to fuel your adventures. Guests love that we offer breakfast all day featuring Biscuits & Sausage Gravy, Eggs Benedict, Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, Mac & Cheese, award-winning Burgers and more. Don’t forget $3.39 mimosas and Bloody Mary’s or a tall glass of sweet tea to help you cool off!
And a Menu Fit for the Whole Family
There is a lot for the whole family to love in Tuscaloosa, but little ones will especially appreciate a visit to the Children’s Hands-On Museum of Tuscaloosa, where the “do-not-touch” exhibit rule does not apply. Kids and kids-at-heart are encouraged to explore, play and learn through highly interactive exhibits.
Then head over to Metro Diner for family dining that’ll please even your pickiest little eaters. Metro Diner’s Kids’ Menu offers miniature versions of our Fried Chicken & Waffles, Chicken Tenders, Grilled Cheese and plenty more.
