Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau

Huntsville offers a different type of Alabama experience, and if you’re an outdoor enthusiast or are passionate about all things “space” — it’s worth a visit!  Located in the 22nd State in our nation, that was admitted to the Union back in 1819 — the “Rocket City” likes to position itself as a “Journey Beyond Your Expectations” — and from our travels there we think it’s well said.  Yes, they’re home to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center that’s a big draw for visitors, along with the popular Space Camp that attracts many kids from around the world — and science and technology are strong pillars woven into this city — but Huntsville also features a thriving arts and cultural scene to enjoy as well!  In addition to the opportunities awaiting you at Big Springs International Park and the many water activities available on the Tennessee River and nearby Lake Guntersville — you’ll find a popular Botanical Gardens and the eclectic Buritt On The Mountain with its variety of animals, nature trails, exhibits, concerts and festivals.  Located about 100 miles south of Nashville, what’s evident here is a preservation of the past while mixing in a healthy dose of the modern.  During our live broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show on 3 April 2021, Judy Ryals, the CEO of the Huntsville/Madison County CVB, joined us on the show hotline to offer some enticing reasons to come visit her city, and you can hear the full interview that ran across our national network of 470 weekly affiliates airing RMWorldTravel with Robert & Mary Carey and Rudy Maxa, by simply clicking on the play arrow below this text …
