Huntsville Weekend Roundup

We can’t tell you how many times we hear, “I’m a dad, but I use Rocket City Mom all the time”. Trust me, ten years ago we had no idea our little website idea would grow so big, or we would’ve named it something that wasn’t so mom-centric. But the name stuck, even though we feature local dads all the time. Don’t believe us? Meet Sam. And Bo. And Ben. And Caleb. We love ALL you Rocket City Dads to the moon and back, and hope you have a fantastic Father’s Day!

There’s lots of fun things to do in Huntsville and even some activities to treat Dad to… check them out below! Just don’t forget your masks. For real.
