Main Street South Shopping Plaza

Main Street Shopping Plaza South Huntsville

This one is a hidden gem. It's down South Parkway and indoors. For those who are fans of a little mountain town near where Dolly Parton lives, this is perfect.  It has several little sections set up for you to snap a photo. This is also where women-owed restaurant Good Company Cafe is located, so make sure to grab a bite to eat while you are out and about.  If you are looking for more to do while in South Huntsville, check out our blog!

Bridge Street Town Centre

If you are looking to find Santa and tell him your wish, you can find him at Bridge Street each weekend through December 24. You can take photos in an open-air environment near their giant Christmas tree. While visits will look a little different this year, the magic of the Santa experience will remain the same. The photos will be socially distanced and visitors are asked to wear a mask at all times except for when you snap a photo. Each household must stay six feet apart from other groups.  Click here for dates and times of Santa sightings.

New this year will be a 10-minute laser light show in two locations: at the bridge near the Belk Courtyard and the Christmas tree near Cinemark. On the weekends you will get at least two chances to catch the show starting at 6:00 p.m. Click here for dates and times of light shows.
