The first weekend in May is always Whistlestop Weekend! It’s a huge BBQ festival in Huntsville and we’ve listed all the things there just for kids and families.
Gadsden has become quite the destination thanks to the Mary G. Hardin Center for the Cultural Arts. We loaded up some friends to go visit their latest exhibit, Dinosaurs Alive!, and set out to discover this hidden North Alabama gem.
The U.S. Space & Rocket Center has a new exhibit kids will LOVE – The Robot Zoo has come to Huntsville, AL! It turns out the inner cogs & workings of robots are great ways to showcase biology in a way that kids completely understand. Our Parent Review breaks down all the details for you before you go.
The Time Travel Adventure takes you on a scavenger hunt through the 1800s, back to a simpler, quiet time. The only sounds were the sounds of happy children singing along with a man playing a violin on the front porch. I didn’t hear cars, cell phones, or the hum of computers, just nature, the violin, and singing. It was peaceful.
Just a short, pleasant hour and a half drive from Huntsville is Chattanooga’s Ruby Falls. Sitting high atop Lookout Mountain, this underground cavern and waterfall has been an area attraction since 1930. Get all the details about this great daytrip your family will love!
Did you know that the US Space and Rocket Center has Saturday Scientists classes every 2nd Saturday of the month? Even better – the classes are included in the price of a general admission ticket to the Rocket Center or free if you have an annual pass!
Monte Sano State Park is close to home and close to civilization (as in Star Market is just down the mountain). As newbies, we knew nothing of a tent camping checklist. We were pretty inexperienced when it came to setting up and tearing down a campsite, too, so Monte Sano seemed like a great place to do a trial run.
