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!

This year’s competition had more than a fair share of close calls, with several organizations running neck and neck for the title!
