Spring comes early for the Rocket City. Daytime temperatures loll around 60-75 degrees, while evenings are comfortably cool. Spring is when hikers hit the trails to see blooming wildflowers, and signature outdoor events like Huntsville Blooms, Panoply Arts Festival, guided historic district tours, and others return.

Autumn days in Huntsville are warm, sunny and exceedingly pleasant. It's a great time to bask in the burst of color as the leaves change, enjoy "hauntingly" fun events like seasonal Ghost Walks, or kid-friendly fun at the Huntsville Botanical Garden's Scarecrow Trail. Nights can get cool, but patio dining and outdoor events are still comfortable.
