All American City


Tuscaloosa was awarded the National Civic League's "All American City" designation in 2002. The award is given to ten cities annually. This sign is painted on the sidewalks in downtown. I'm assuming it's part of a walking tour.
Here's a link to the Wikipedia article that lists all the city winners by year.

Neat! I doubt Jackson will be getting this award any time soon. We don't even have sidewalks!

That's quite an honor for Tuscaloosa. I don't blame them for reminding people. I agree that the sign is probably for a walking tour.

And Tuscaloosa is a very walkable city.

What a neat award and certainly something to be proud of.

I'm guessing it's part of a walking tour also. I wonder what other cities have been named All American?

There's a wikipedia article that tells all the cities by year of their awards. Some have won more than once!
I'll add it to the original post.
