Holiday Time In Huntsville, Alabama

The holidays are a great time to explore the great state of Alabama.  Make plans to visit Huntsville, Alabama, for some holiday cheer.  It’s an easy drive from our area to North Alabama.  I don’t know about you, but Christmas lights totally put me in a festive mood!  The smell of pine Christmas Trees, Hot Chocolate, and Christmas Cookies are in my future as I take a road trip to Huntsville, Alabama.

Huntsville’s Tinsel Trail

According to Huntsville’s Tinsel Trail website, it is the 9th year, and they “anticipate over 300 trees will decorate the park for the holiday season. Intended to promote community, each tree is sponsored by a local corporation, group, or family, and can be decorated by its sponsor or another organization designated by the sponsor.”  You can visit Tinsel Trail at Big Spring Park in Downtown Huntsville from November 29th until January 1st.   It’s open to the public daily until midnight, and the trees are lit from dusk until midnight.
