"Huntsville offers a
lot of things that
you wouldn't expect
of a city this size."
— Dr. Bobby Moore
Huntsville, Alabama successfully combines a rich heritage of Southern hospitality with innovative high-tech ventures and cultural diversity.
At approximately half a million residents, Huntsville offers the best of both worlds — the uncrowded atmosphere of a smaller city with the variety and vitality of a growing metropolitan area.
The greater Huntsville metro is home to several Fortune 500 companies and countless technology, aerospace, and defense corporations. Huntsville also offers a broad base of manufacturing, retail, and service industries. Educational opportunities are excellent from preschool through Ph.D. levels, with two universities and one college in Huntsville and others nearby.
Our climate, geography, and steady economic growth combine to offer an unparalleled variety of recreational opportunities - from golfing to spelunking and from antiquing to high end shopping. Huntsville’s thriving arts community features the full spectrum of artistic interests including music, theatre, and visual arts.
With its vast array of educational, recreational, and cultural opportunities, Huntsville is regularly named among the country's premier locations for business and quality of life.
