9 Amazing Family Day Trips from Huntsville While Social Distancing

day trips from huntsville during the pandemic

If your family is like mine, we are continuing to practice safe social distancing this summer. But how can we do that and still take a few fun day trips this year? It’s tricky, especially because a lot of attractions we love are still closed. We’re not ready to stay overnight anywhere just yet, so a road trip where we can set out in the morning and be back home by bedtime is ideal.

We found several of our favorite destinations are still open to visit during the pandemic, and all have put social distancing procedures in place. 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!
