Outdoors

In Huntsville, you’ll never feel cooped up. Adventures in the great outdoors await at every turn!

  • Want to stretch your legs with a brisk walk? Find one of our many parks or greenways.
  • Want to relax near shimmering shores or take the boat out for a spin? Ditto Landing is your gateway to the Tennessee River.
  • Looking to play 18 holes? Check out any of the Rocket City’s various golf courses.
  • Want the best view in town? Head up to Monte Sano State Park. While you’re there, hit just a few of the city’s numerous hiking and biking trails.

The climate and topography of the Tennessee Valley make Huntsville a dream for any outdoor enthusiast.
