9+ Amazing Family Day Trips from Huntsville While Social Distancing

day trips from huntsville during the pandemic

If your family has younger kids like mine, we are continuing to practice safe social distancing this Spring. But how can we do that and still take a few fun day trips this year? Maybe your family isn’t ready to stay overnight anywhere just yet, so a road trip where you can set out in the morning and be back home by bedtime is ideal.

We found several of our favorite destinations are back open to visit, so the next time your family has a free 24 hours and a full tank of gas, grab your masks and set out for a bit of adventure!
