Review of Tuscaloosa, Alabama

The Most Generic City in America
Star Rating - 9/17/2021
Tuscaloosa used to have some character. We had a decent live music scene, an up and coming artist community, affordable housing, and there were even several places for LGBT people. Now, it's just football and giant generic overpriced condos. ALL of the cool music venues are gone. Not that it matters, since the local musicians can no longer afford to live anywhere near them. There's only one gay bar left. It doesn't open until around 10pm.

If you enjoy art, original music, diversity and most anything else except football, don't come here. Oh, and if you do like football you better have a substantial income. Those tickets are not cheap. If however, you are one of those generic rich people with no personality who enjoys living in giant cubes and who wants to be surrounded by other equally uninteresting people, this is your town.
