Alberta City is a suburban area of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Alberta city is located in the northeastern area of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, United States. The area is generally defined as encompassing the portions of the city east of U.S. Route 82 (McFarland Boulevard), west of Holt, south of the Black Warrior River and north of Veterans Memorial Parkway. In April 2011, Alberta City took the heaviest blow to a tornado that ripped the entire city (residents, churches, stores, etc.) away, changing the landscape and property/business vacancies. Two police stations, a postal office, elementary, middle, and primary day care schools. Alberta City is now being reconstructed and many properties are being bought by potential University of Alabama profit seekers due to its geographical proximity to the university's main campus. With its founding in 1912 and much of its early development tracing to the early 20th Century, what is present-day Alberta City was annexed into Tuscaloosa on September 21, 1948.

The neighborhood is serviced by both Alabama State Route 215 (University Boulevard) and U.S. Route 82 (McFarland Boulevard). Public transportation is provided via public bus serviced by the Tuscaloosa Transit Authority's Holt Route. Large portions of Alberta City were destroyed in the April 25–28, 2011 tornado outbreak, when a powerful F4 tornado moved across the city of Tuscaloosa.
