We love Fall in the Tennessee Valley! There’s no shortage of free/cheap fun to do in the Huntsville area and we’ve listed some of our favorites for you below.
Note: If you’re staying in town for the school break next week, be sure to consult our Fall Break Camp for Kids list. It’s not too late to sign the kids up for some fun camps & classes next week! I think you’ll find our Fall Break for $5 or Less info pretty handy for next week too!
Of course, you can also browse our full Event Calendar if you need even more ideas. Be sure to download the free Explore Huntsville app to get all the best RCM info on the go. Just don’t forget your mask and hand sanitizer!
