Tuskegee University Holiday Getaway for their On-Campus resort and Tuskegee History and Black Owned Businesses

A holiday getaway is a trip like no other vacation. A holiday getaway is the perfect time for Southern Belles and her family to enjoy the joyful inspired sightings in a new town or city Instead of seeing your common, yet, unique holiday cheer in your hometown, you should start by planning a getaway that gives you and your family a new outlook on how holidays are celebrated elsewhere. For this reason, I am here today to share a Tuskegee University holiday getaway that features their on-campus resort and a multitude of Black Owned Businesses. 

Tuskegee University On-Campus Resort

Located on Tuskegee University campus in Tuskegee, Alabama is the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center. This hotel and center serves as a resort for travelers near and far. With Southern hospitality and popular hotel amenities such as spa tubs, a 24-hour business center, and a fitness center, Southern Belles and their families can enjoy and appreciate the tranquility of the HBCU lifestyle while still staying comfortably in their Southern resort. Surrounded by the history and architecture of Tuskegee University and the George Washington Carver Museum, the hotel and conference center blends seamlessly into the Southern Alabama elegance and gives tourists, like ourselves, a welcoming place to stay.
