Huntsville, AL With Kids: Caverns, Science and Rocket

Huntsville With Kids - AlabamaThe weekend before our school started here in Georgia, we squeezed in a last hurray before we all back to the routine of life. We packed up the car and drove to our neighboring state in Alabama for a fun weekend of family friendly activities in Huntsville. Here are the sneak peek of what we did in Huntsville during this weekend trip.

The Wonder of Nature at Cathedral Caverns

Huntsville With Kids - Cathedral Cave HelmetOur first stop while we were en route to Hunstville was Cathedral Caverns. This was our first visit to any caves with kids. A cave helmet was a great souvenir to get them excited about the journey lied ahead.

Huntsville With Kids - Cathedral CaveI will have to write a more detail post on our journey deep into the caverns. It was such a cool and great experience. The Cathedral Caverns State park is well maintained so it was very easy for family to enjoy. The path along the caverns is paved and you can easily navigate with your stroller.

Sharpen Young Mind with Science

Huntsville With Kids - Sci-Quest CenterSci-Quest was our next stop in Huntsville. This small, yet fun science center provided us with many hand-on exhibits that we spent the rest of the day there.

Blast Off Their Imagination with Space Center

Huntsville With Kids - US Space & Rocket CenterOur last stop was the main attraction that we came here for. The US Space & Rocket Center was hosting the special Star Wars exhibit. And the kids were truly excited as we pulled into the parking lot greeting by the huge space rocket.

Visit back soon as we dive into the detail of our fun visit in this small town.

  1. Ahh memories. I grew up 45 minutes from Huntsville, and we’d go on an annual class trip to the space center. I freakin’ love that place!!

  2. You guys were busy! And they got to keep their cave helmets?? Cool!

  3. That cave picture looks amazing…and I’d be all about the helmet myself :D

  4. How fun! The cavern looks incredible. I always think of Tom Sawyer when I see caverns. :-)
