About the Tour

Welcome to the Rocket City, Travel Rebel.

Today I’ll be guiding you through Huntsville and showing you it’s hidden gems.

You’ll see its historic sites, city Murals, the art walk, monkeynauts, the space bootprints of Alan Shepard, the oldest hardwarestore in Alabama and much more.

And you’ll learn about Huntsville’s founding, history, Alabama’s constitutional story, the rattle snake killing John Hunt, the Nazi rocket scientist that built the Saturn Rockets, and of course it’s astronaut and rocket city history.

The tour starts at the Huntsville Rocket City Mural, with the Saturn V Rocket, in Big Spring Park. I’ll meet you there.
