The visitor's center is nicer than many others I have been to in other areas. It is conveniently located downtown and they have a good stock of lots of local information available.

I've been here multiple times, especially when I first moved here, and always enjoyed the experience. The employees always treated me like a long time friend, or due to my age a prodigal grandson. They know all the local events, best ways of getting places, and where the best eats are. I've always felt welcomed there.

When you're new to the area its always best to start at the beginning with people in the know. You'll find them at the Huntsville Visitor Center. Just tell them what you want to see and they will get your there, and provide discount coupons for some attractions too.

The three ladies staffing the help desk were a delight to talk with on a Saturday morning. They answered all of our questions and pointed us to the Weeden House, and gave us a walking tour booklet for the antebellum homes around there. Highly recommend visiting the Huntsville Visitor Center!

Gosh, talk about Southern Hospitality - the two ladies who were there just could not help us enough - suggesting a restaurant that turned out to be outstanding and giving us solid directions to the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center. Very nice place, extremely clean. Great start to our Trip!!!
