Travel + Leisure named the “25 Best College Towns and Cities in the U.S.” this month, and Alabama has yet another claim to fame.

“From coast to coast, these are the best American college towns and cities,” Stacey Leasca writes, helping parents figure out where to send their kids when the time comes. “As for what makes a great college town, that’s a little subjective, but we like to think it’s a place that has a good mix of educational and professional opportunities, proximity to schools, and plenty of other co-eds ready to mix it up.”

So which Alabama city made the cut? Tuscaloosa, home to the University of Alabama (and the Crimson Tide).

Here’s what they wrote about the Druid City: “As the home of the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa is an obvious place to add to this list. With more than 38,000 students, the university really is the center of life here, and its sports teams make for excellent game-day outings.”

Other notable Southern city picks included Lynchburg, Va.; Gainesville, Fla.; Athens, Ga.; Tallahassee, Fla.; and Oxford, Miss.

What makes a great college town? The academic opportunities that will forge a path to success for your child beats all, but things like restaurants, live music, historical landmarks and other cultural offerings create the character people look for when determining where they might spend their next four years. Tuscaloosa certainly has plenty of that.
