Movoto Real Estate blog came up with the 10 most exciting places in Alabama and Tuscaloosa made the number 7 spot.

To create this oh-so-exciting list, we started by making a stop to the 2010 U.S. Census. There, we found all of the places in Alabama with populations of 10,000 or more, which left us with a total of 64 places. Then, we looked at each in terms of the following eight criteria:

  • Nightlife per capita (bars, clubs, comedy, etc.)
  • Live music venues per capita
  • Active life options per capita (parks, outdoor activities, etc.)
  • Arts and Entertainment per capita (movie theaters, festivals, galleries, theaters, etc.)
  • Fast Food restaurants per capita (the fewer the better)
  • Percentage of restaurants that are not fast food (the higher the better)
  • Percentage of young residents ages 18 to 34 (the higher the better)
  • Population density (the higher the better)
