We spent a couple of days exploring Huntsville, Alabama and what I discovered is that Huntsville is a city of hidden gems. Behind a fascade of something oridnary and mundance lies some of the greatest places to go.
We started off the weekend with a trip to the Lowe Mill ARTS and Entertainment building. Housed in an old factory, now is the home to hundreds of artist studios of such a overwhelming diversity of art and craft.
Afterwards we had dinner at Hildegard’s German Cuisine which was a small restaurant tucked away in a corner of small shopping area. The food was excellent and is rated one of the best places to eat in the city. But unless you were looking for it you would never know it’s there.
Huntsville is an amazing city with treasures hidden throughout. The idea of taking an old run down building and giving it new life while still maintaining the integrity of the building is incredible. The places to eat and the parks that do not need a lot of fanfare of publicity but quietly offer wonderful experiences to their visitors. And the space center that gives a glimpse into our history and makes us wonder about our future and if we could ever be among the stars. Huntsville has so much to offer its visitors if only you can find it.
