Rocket City

The three historical districts of Huntsville are tucked amid the lush greenery of nearly 60 parks within the city limits. Federal and Greek Revival architecture from the 19th century dominate two of the historical districts, while the third (made up of charming bungalows) dates from the early 20th century. Visitors flock to town for the U.S. Space Camp and Aviation Challenge. Quirky attractions offer a piece of Americana.
