Every spring and fall, the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau shows off Huntsville and Madison through its free walking tours. Tours are guided by local experts and focus on the historic districts of both cities. Popular for both visitors and locals, you can enjoy a 1 -2 hour stroll by some of Alabama’s most beautiful antebellum mansions. Your guide will share stories about the homes’ owners as well as recognizing each site’s distinctive style.Twickenham tours depart from the Alabama Constitution Hall Park Confectionery Shoppe, and Madison tours depart from the Gazebo on Front Street. No tickets or reservations are needed for walking tours. Just bring yourself (and your thirst for historical knowledge!) If the rain is light, bring your umbrellas! If the weather is severe or there is heavy rain, the CVB will announce cancellations prior to the tour’s departure via social media.
