2022 Rocket City Mom Family Favorite Award Winners

Rocket City Mom readers have spoken! Hundreds of nominations and thousands of votes later and we have our 2022 winners. A big congratulations to all the local businesses and organizations represented on this list. Huntsville really is a great place to raise a family and you are part of why that’s true.

As always, a reminder that this award is unique in that both the nominations and votes are done entirely by our readers. I mean, when you’re looking for the 411 on the best place to hang out in Huntsville with a toddler, who better to ask than THOUSANDS of local parents!

Of course, just like everything else today, our city is deeply divided on certain topics so you’ll notice more than a few ties. This year we had one category where there were 3,412 votes and the winners had the EXACT SAME NUMBER OF VOTES.

Honestly, we feel like having so many categories be so close is literally a great problem to have. So many beloved attractions and businesses that it’s hard to decide between them 🙂
