Centrally located in the SE, Huntsville has truly earned the nickname Rocket City, USA!
Train like an astronaut at U.S. Space Camp and visit earth’s largest space museum, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. If green space is more to your liking, come to the Huntsville Botanical Garden, home to the nation’s largest open-air butterfly house. Marvel in the kaleidoscope of colors in the 120-acre garden.
For some indoor fun, visit our numerous hands-on attractions with diverse themes including art, history, science and the military. Our downtown is revitalized with multi-million dollar improvements to the Von Braun Center, an expansion at the Huntsville Museum of Art nearly doubling the exhibit space and the addition of first-class dining at Cotton Row, James Steak House, 1892 East and many more tantalizing restaurants.
All this and more wrapped in warm Southern hospitality sprinkled with some of the best events and activities around.
