Welcome! The Huntsville/Madison County CVB is here to help you explore Huntsville and its surrounding areas. Huntsville is commonly referred to as the "Rocket City" for our role in developing the powerful rockets that first put humans on the moon in the 1960s. Fast forward to 2015, and Huntsville remains a major hub for the science, technology, defense and biotechnology fields. Visit Huntsville and discover for yourself the history, adventure and fun that pulses through every corner of the city.
