Lots of blowups and similar games for the on the quad.  Plus, they love to watch all the goings-on.

Sometimes, individual University departments have activities, face painting, etc., usually on the quad.

Non-Food Vendors

The Strip has several shops to pick up swag.  Ranges from cheap t- to really nice Arthur Court serving ware.

The University Supply Store (a/k/a “Supe Store”) always has a big tent on The Quad with lots of , books, and other .

Bryant Museum

The Bryant Museum is in the same complex as the Capstone Hotel, between Coleman Coliseum and Bryant-Denny Stadium.  Lots of people view it as a pilgrimage, and it really is cool.

Keep in mind, Coach Bryant died over 35 years ago.  A lot of weren’t even born during the second heyday in the late-70s, let alone the first one in the 60s, and even fewer have clear memories of either.  The OFC revels, but it might as well be the ancient Rome for a lot of the younger folks.

So while it concentrates on the Bryant years, it’s also about Alabama in general.

Still, if you haven’t been, or if you’re an Alabama history buff, it’s definitely worth a visit.  The museum is small, but has some cool stuff.
