When he was a kid, my husband thought Labor Day was the weekend your mom made you deep-clean the house from top to bottom. It wasn’t until he was older that he found out the true reason for this holiday weekend at the end of summer. Lucky for you there are plenty of fun things to do with your family in Huntsville and North Alabama after all those chores! We listed some great options here in our Huntsville Weekend Roundup.
