Our Cities

As the second-largest metropolitan area in Alabama, Huntsville, greater Madison County and its surrounding communities are a testament to the Southern traditions of hospitality, curiosity and fun. From the down-home comfort of Madison to the history and high-tech bustle of Huntsville, there’s never a dull moment in our quickly developing region. It’s not hard to find a nearby quiet corner, either.

Take a closer look at Madison County, and you’ll find a whole lot more to see than just the Rocket City
