If you want to explore the creative side of Tuscaloosa, make sure you visit these local stores and venues.

If you've been shopping for Tuscaloosa homes for sale, you probably want to know what your prospective neighborhood has to offer in the way of schools, houses of worship, medical facilities, restaurants, and recreation.

Valentine's Day is coming up fast, so don't waste time and visit these great Tuscaloosa chocolate and candy shops to find the perfect gift.

Valentine's Day, the day for celebrating love, has long been associated with sweet things — chocolate, in particular. Heart-shaped bonbons and heart-shaped boxes full of sweet treats all bespeak the association of love with sweets. But how did we get from celebrating Valentine's Day to sweet treats?

Valentine's Day began when a Roman bishop by that name defied a ban and secretly granted marriages to soldiers and their sweethearts. Valentine was imprisoned and was said to have sent a letter to the daughter of his jailer, signing it "Your Valentine."

Tuscaloosa Ice Cream Shops

I scream, you scream, Alabama screams for ice cream! July is National Ice Cream Month, giving us a sweet way to beat the summer heat. Although President Ronald Regan first declared July National Ice Cream Month in 1984, the invention of ice cream dates back thousands of years. Whether you like it in a cone or a cup, our real estate agents suggest that you grab yourself a few scoops of ice cream at these local shops.

  1. The Baked Bear – 1800 McFarland Blvd., E. Suite 207, Tuscaloosa, AL 35404
    If there's one animal that knows a thing or two about ice cream, it's The Baked Bear. Make your own custom ice cream sandwich by selecting an ice cream flavor and toppings to press between two cookies or brownies. You can even get your sandwich warmed up to make it an ooey-gooey treat. 

  2. TCBY – 2 McFarland Blvd., Northport, AL 35476
    A sweet shop claiming to have "The Country's Best Yogurt" must deliver, and TCBY doesn't disappoint. Located in the Essex Square Market Place, TCBY has 10 delicious flavors of frozen yogurt for those who would like to celebrate National Ice Cream Month with a healthier alternative. Sorbet, Greek yogurt, and no sugar added flavors are all on the menu, joining classic favorites like vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. If someone you know has a birthday coming up, grab them a cake from TCBY for a double-celebration!
