Downtown Madison

Madison

Madison, Alabama has become the fastest growing city in the state, and with that comes more restaurants, shopping, events and places to stay than ever before. In three decades, its population has increased from 4,000 to more than 50,000, and it is still growing.

So Much to Do in Madison City

Much like Huntsville, the growth of Madison beyond an agricultural community can be attributed to railroad activity. The center of Downtown Madison, Main Street, developed along the tracks of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. The quaint city center anchors the annual Madison Street Festival, the city’s largest event, featuring local artisans, an always-colorful car show, a petting zoo, local entertainment and gourmet food.

There are 1,000 businesses operating within Madison city limits, and the growing city is a destination for important work, along with relaxing lifestyle options and unlimited leisure. It’s a brief drive to Huntsville’s Research Park or Redstone Arsenal if you’re here for business, and Huntsville International Airport is just south of Madison, across I-565. 

With a high per capita income, a nationally recognized school system, and accolades such as “a Top 100 place to live,” it’s easy to see why Madison is so attractive to not only locals, but to visitors to the area.
