Ranked by U.S. News and World Reports as a top 10 place to live in America, Huntsville is perfect for you and your family. Due to its growing number of jobs in the defense and aerospace industries, this incredible city in Alabama boasts many great homes nearby, excellent school systems and a lot of awesome things to do! Here are just a few great activities you can partake in.

U.S. Space & Rocket Center

We first start with the very reason why Huntsville is called Rocket City. It would be foolish not to visit the U.S. Space & Rocket Center (USSRC) at least once while living in Huntsville. This awe-inspiring is a Smithsonian Affiliate and boasts one of the biggest assortments of rockets and space memorabilia worldwide. If that's not enough, you can taste what it's like to live like an astronaut at the world-famous Space Camp! 

Music Scene

Are you looking to hear the sweet sounds of orchestra music? Then purchase your tickets to enjoy the Hunstville Symphony Orchestra (HSO). Whether it's classical style or today's music, the HSO has something everyone can enjoy. If that's not your speed, then make sure to visit the Orion Amphitheater to see a wide range of concerts from Country to Adult Contemporary. This should sound like music to your ears!
