AUSA Guide To Huntsville, Alabama

We are thrilled to be hosting the 2017 AUSA Global Force Symposium & Exposition in the Rocket City. To make your conference even more fun and let you enjoy our city while you are here, we've created this Global Force Symposium Guide for experiencing Huntsville.

Hello from the Rocket City!

The high-tech city of Huntsville which sprawls at the foot of a mountain in North Alabama is equally at home in the 19th century or the 21st. Huntsville's tourist attractions reflect the heritage of Alabama's first English-speaking city, the strife of the American Civil War and the accomplishments of America's rocket scientists.  

The city is nicknamed "The Rocket City" for its close history with U.S. space missions. Huntsville has been important in developing space technology since the 1950s.
