I lived in Huntsville for about 2 years. Here are some of the highlights.

Huntsville is an oasis of technology in an otherwise rural Alabama. It's home to Space Camp, NASA's Marshall Flight Center and has the highest per Capita of Master's degrees in the US.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Museums , Culture in a beautiful & natural surroundings
  • Cons:Hot and humid summers
  • In a nutshell:Beautiful place to live in

    The space museum and old village sound like a full day of touring just those tow things. Good presentation. I plan to get here in Jan if all works out.

    Hey, Jim. Ran across your Biergarten Cafe entry on Virtual Tourist. They've been closed awhile. Unfortunately towards the end, they got pretty nasty, which only accelerated their demise. Still, I had many a good meal there while they lasted.

    I Love Madison's Roundhouse. It is put to good use during the Madison Street Falr and Spirit Walks, and is a fine place to picnic or soak up the Christmas Spirit when there at Holiday time!

    Thanks for stopping by my page. I lived in Huntsville for 8months and had no idea there was so much to do there. I guess that's why I left.

    My grandmother lived in Huntsville, My aunt and uncle live there now, and my best friend lives in Harvest. Great look at this northern Alabama space city, Jim. Thanks for the kind comment on my Namibia page.
