Known as "Rocket City," Huntsville, Alabama, is a high tech city popular for its role in the space program. The city itself has so many attractions that it offers the Huntsville Passport, which allows hotel visitors admittance to many of them for one price. Accommodations include bed and breakfasts, campsites, and hotels that range from inexpensive motels to full service hotels and extended stay hotels.
The Tom Beville Hotel and Conference Center is one of several hotels that provide meeting spaces and amenities. The Von Braun Center has over 17,000 square feet for larger events.
Hotel visitors can dine in any number of restaurants that serve American, Asian, Italian, or barbeque, just to name a few. Chain restaurants are comfortable, easy choices, but local places like Gibson's BBQ are excellent.
The Davidson Center for Space Exploration-U.S. Space and Rocket Center is the place for hotel visitor to visit. Learn the history of American space exploration, and get a glimpse of what the future might hold.
Huntsville can rightly be called a shopper's paradise, as there are no less than three shopping malls, plus quaint local shops. Bridge street Town Center has over 70 stores, like Victoria's Secret and FYI, while the other malls have stores like Belk, Dillard's, and JCPenney.
