VISITING TUSKEGEE
« on: April 16, 2011, 05:30:48 PM »
I have wanted to visit the historic Tuskegee University for some time now.  I am flying into Atlanta next month on my way to North Carolina and have decided to take a day to drive down to Tuskegee, Alabama to visit the campus and local area.  School will be out so I know there will not be much action but are there any must sees while I’m there?

Nova, why didn't you just tell him to see the whole campus? :lol:

The very first time I visited Tuskegee was in March (or April) of 1990. I went to The Booker T Washington home and the Carver Museum. I think they're both must-sees. When I took my mother there in 2006, we went to those sites plus the new site at Moton Field...........................which was in a trailer at the time.
I am now on Facebook! Come check me out...

ag,

I insist that you stop telling the truth  :nod:... Sneakers are probably better. If it's hot, your feet start sweating and sliding in sandals. Also, beware of these:

I bought a pair of trail running shoes especially for Tuskegee last year....if you want to see a funny sight, post up on the hill at a homecoming game and wait for a young (or not so young) female to slip in some 5 inch heels... :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:
