Welcome to Huntsville! Congratulations on finding one of the best kept secrets in Huntsville and North Alabama. Below is a “How To” Guide on everything at Rocket City Mom. We’ve built this site to be easy to navigate but we’ve grown a lot and to newbies, the content can seem overwhelming. Hopefully, after reading this, you’ll feel like an old pro.

On Rocket City Mom you will find daily articles by local moms (and dads) about everything parenting. Have questions about your educational options? We’ve got that covered in our Education series. Need some ideas for what to do with the family this weekend?

So maybe we don’t literally do that, but it sure will feel like it. Check out our website for tips on which area restaurants welcome kids, which local parks have bathrooms and shade, and which area attractions are worth the money.
