4 Places to Go This Winter for That Feed-Worthy Photo Shoot


While you won’t catch anyone tossing snow into the air in Tuscaloosa (hello, snowless city), there are still plenty of places you’ll want to be this winter to gas up your social feed. From bridges and murals to parks and even the University of Alabama campus, keep reading to discover some seriously sweet photo ops to check out during the holidays in Tuscaloosa.

The Riverwalk

The Riverwalk in Tuscaloosa is prettiest in the winter, especially at night – think glassy water,  sparkling lights, beautiful bridges, and even a few decorated holiday trees. Have a friend take a pic of you on one of the bridges, with the lights in the background, or have them grab an action shot of you walking along the pathway, with the water as your backdrop.

Black Warrior Railroad Bridge

Speaking of bridges (and while you’re at The Riverwalk), the Black Warrior Railroad Bridge is an absolute must-visit destination for winter photos. This steel and wood beauty was built in 1898 and sits just behind the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater. If you’re going for that industrial-rustic look for the backdrop of your pics this winter, you’ll definitely want to be here this holiday season.

University of Alabama

Who would’ve thought our very own U of A campus would be a photo-worthy hotspot in the city? The Quad, Bryant-Denny Stadium, Denny Chimes, President’s Mansion … the list goes on. Bring a friend and snap a few pics between classes – and be sure to tag your location!

Tuscaloosa Mural

Seriously though … you had to see this one coming! The Tuscaloosa mural is one of the most photographed spots in the city. So why not jump on the trend and get that giant Tuscaloosa mural in the backdrop of your next IG post? Just head to the east corner of University Boulevard and Red Drew Avenue, along The Strip – you can’t miss it!
