The high-tech city of Huntsville, which sprawls at the foot of a mountain in North Alabama, is equally at home in the 19th century or the 21st. Huntsville's tourist attractions reflect the heritage of Alabama's first English-speaking city, the strife of the American Civil War, and the accomplishments of America's rocket scientists. 

The city is nicknamed "The Rocket City" for its close history with U.S. space missions. Huntsville has been important in developing space technology since the 1950s. It is the site of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, NASA's Marshall Space Flight Centre, and the United States Army Aviation and Missile Command. Huntsville may have under 200,000 inhabitants but its place in history is already set in stone, and its future is exceptionally promising. This illustrious hub of progress and innovation is a prominent cultural and technological centre in North Alabama and indeed the nation.
