5 things to do in Huntsville for Spring Break

Welcome to Huntsville

Spring Break is right around the corner. Here are 5 things to do in Huntsville that’s sure to bring lots of fun and family memories.

1. Spend a day exploring the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. It has one of the largest collections of rockets and space memorabilia on display anywhere in the world. Get a true sense of what it’s like to live and work in space as you walk through the space station in ISS: Science on Orbit. Experience the mesmerizing view of a National Historic Landmark – an authentic Saturn V rocket – one of only three in the world, located in the Saturn V Hall of the Davidson Center for Space Exploration.  (

2. Check out all things nature at Huntsville Botanical Garden. The 112-acre garden is open year-round and contains a diverse ecosystem of meadows, upland and bottomland forest, wetlands, and a variety of specialty gardens and native plant collections. There will be a Spring into Gardening: Spring STEM Break Camp during Spring Break week. (

3. Enjoy the great outdoors at Burritt on the Mountain. Situated on a 167-acre site overlooking the city, visitors can explore the natural beauty of Round Top Mountain, learn about its ecology, revisit the lives of farmers from the 1800s, and tour the Burritt Mansion. The park consists of six authentic 19th century homes typical of life in the Cumberland Plateau, along with a blacksmith shop and assorted outbuildings. Interpreters in authentic period dress are on hand to answer questions, give tours, and demonstrate life as it was on a farm during the 1800s. At the heart of the park is The McCurdy Barnyard, home to a variety of authentic farm animals that educate young and old about the animals’ purpose on a farm.  A Nature Rangers Spring Camp: Tales, Tails & Trails is March 13-17 for Kindergarten through fifth-grade from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Campers will learn about different folktales from around the world and close to home and meet animals that inspired some of those stories.

4. Get hands-on at the EarlyWorks Children’s Museum. Hear stories from a talking tree, explore a 46-foot Keelboat, build on the light tables, visit Biscuit in his backyard, and so much more. (

5. Take a hike, walk, or ride a bike on one of the Land Trust of North Alabama trails. The Land Trust of North Alabama offers plenty of spaces to relax, exercise, and connect with nature. Nine public nature preserves and one paved greenway offer more than 80 miles of public trails for hiking, biking, and outdoor recreation. (
