About twice a year we take the motorhome over to Huntsville, Al to compete in a local agility Dog competition. We always enjoy going over to Huntsville. It is a cute little town with a lot of great things to do. From the Amazing Air and Space Museum, to some cool parks and awesome restaurants. This is a fun little town to visit.
We wanted to capture all of these great things to do. Last time we were there we checked in on RVillage, and Bob n Anne Marie noticed we were in town. Bob n Anne Marie are locals in Huntsville and they follow our blog. They were so nice to share info about all the cool things to do in Huntsville. We wanted to capture the info they shared with us as well as places we like as well. This review covers that information in case you ever get a chance to visit Huntsville!

Things to Do in Huntsville, AL
The US Air and Space Museum is a destination in itself!. Probably one of the most interesting museums we have ever been to. If you are a fan of NASA this is not a 1 day adventure. We EASILY could spend 3 days here seeing and checking out all the cool stuff to do here. We HIGHLY recommend the museums and tours. Worth going out of your way to check it out
