60 Things To Do This Summer In Huntsville with Kids

With a FULL summer ahead of you, now is the perfect time to create a giant list of fun activities you want to do with your family. Kids (and adults) will enjoy making the plans almost as much as following through on them.

Here at Rocket City Mom, we asked our readers and writers for their “Huntsville Summer Must-Dos” and came up with 60 things to do this summer to help inspire you.
