Stopping to see the sights

During a recent trip to Houston, I decided to make the short 70 miles north to Huntsville.

During my trip, I realized just how much history there is to see, and how I had passed this location 20 times, and never took the time to stop in.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Tons of History
  • Cons:Lots of college kids
  • In a nutshell:Great History.

    Thanks for a great page on my hometown! I see you enjoyed your visit. It's funny that now that I'm away from there, I appreciate it more.

    An informative, interesting group of pages about Huntsville. I LOL about your warning because it is so often the case. Enjoyed reading your restaurant tip; your description was vivid and I could just see you soaking up the ambience and memories.

    Didn't know rugby was an "extreme" sport. GRIN! Thanks for acknowledging Sam Houston's Tennessee roots.
