Relocating to the Rocket City

Huntsville, Alabama - affectionately known as the Rocket City - is a technological town with a large presence of both engineers and creatives. The area has started rapidly growing over recent years and a large percentage of the population has relocated to the area from different states. This has given an eclectic and diverse feel to the expanding region.

The Rocket City is made up of two main cities, Huntsville (population of 193,079) and Madison (population of 47,959), with a number of surrounding smaller cities that make up the greater Rocket City region. Harvest, Athens, Meridianville, Hampton Cove, and Athens are small cities surrounding the metro area.

What’s there to do?

One of the best parts of the…

Ladies, if you’re looking for an exercise program focused on permanent results and without all the tough guy bluster we all imagine when we hear the words “boot camp”, look no further than Huntsville Adventure Boot Camp for Women!

ABC, run by program director and coach Joe Martin, has facilities in Huntsville and Madison. They also operate in the Harvest/Monrovia area, with their own head coach Deborah Thomason.

The boot camp is billed as “a four-week outdoor program of fitness instruction, nutritional counseling, and motivational training”. Each week most groups meet Monday-Friday, with each day’s session lasts one hour, however there are 3- and 4-day a week alternatives as well. Participants can expect to engage in core conditioning, short…

Continuing our series of pieces on easy, outdoorsy day trips from the Huntsville area, this week I’m having a mixed bag of feelings on sharing Stephens Gap. Somewhat like a teenager who thinks their favorite band is cooler the fewer people that know them, there can be a twinge of guilt letting people in on a place like this, and I suppose I could rationalize it by wondering if someone wound up going and leaving garbage on the trail because they heard about someplace from me.

But, it’s a bummer to feel that way and much nicer to excitedly urge the sure footed among you to check out the natural wonder of Jackson County’s Stephens Gap cave. Protected by the Southeastern Cave Conservancy, and located a little over half an hour from Huntsville, Stephens Gap…

Oddly enough, Thai restaurants are few and far between so it Is always nice to find a restaurant that specializes in Thai food and not a “fusion” that incorporates Thai qualities. The cuisine of Thailand is spicy, deceptively simple, and light. Luckily, Decatur has a Thai restaurant that is as close to Thai food as you can get without hopping on an airplane.

Menu Items

Green Leaf has modestly priced meals with a wide variety of flavors and spices from which to choose. Their list of curries are unique and varied from mild for the uninitiated to extremely spicy for the experienced. Green Leaf also has an impressive sushi selection that from Nigri Sushi to Sashimi. If you are a sushi lover Green Leaf is definitely the place for you.

I admit to having grown up in this area and not having heard of Huntsville’s Harmony Safari Park until a few days ago. As the internet says, it is indeed somewhat of a kept secret in town, as I don’t recall ever hearing its name in my social circle. Rocket City is home to a variety of unique experiences, this being one of them.

Folks are split on these sorts of attractions: Harmony Safari Park is home to endangered animals, and regardless of anyone’s take on the matter, it’s undoubtedly a kid magnet and likely an exciting way to .spend a few hours together as a family on the weekend. What kid isn’t fascinated by actual, live baboons and snapping turtles?

HSP’s website doesn’t have a lot of info, but it’s presented interestingly enough, as…

The Auburn-Alabama Football fan feud is one of both viciousness and camaraderie. Much, I am led to believe, like the bickering of siblings. It is mostly good clean fun…mostly. Regardless of which of our football teams you cheer for during the season, or lament the dragging days of their off-season their is no denying the importance of sports in regard to southern culture. While those are our two most recognizable teams in the state, we in the Rocket City have another team: The Huntsville Havoc. Hockey is not the most obvious choice in the south. It’s hot pretty much all off the time, and ours is more commonly a warm Christmas than a white Christmas, but that is what makes the Huntsville Havoc such an exciting experience. There are not many place in…
