If you love to fish for bass, you're not going to want to miss the action just about an hour away at Guntersville Reservoir, which just happens to be one of the best large mouth bass lakes in the US. One of our American Journeys RVers thinks you'll also enjoy your stay at the State Park where you'll find nice level sites. Once you get set up you'll enjoy exploring the neat downtown where you'll find great shopping and fun restaurants.
In Athens, AL, which is only about 30 minutes away, you'll find the Altar of the New Testament and Founders Hall and the Houston Library and Museum.
A trip to Decatur, AL, also only about 30 minutes from Huntsville, will give you a chance to visit the Cook's Natural Science Museum, the Old State Bank (1833), and the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge and Givens Wildlife Interpretive Center.
Fans of the Blues won't mind driving a little over an hour to Florence, AL and the W. C. Handy Birthplace, Museum, and Library. Not familiar with Handy? William Christopher Handy was the creator of the St. Louis Blues, the Memphis Blues, and the Beale Street Blues and is widely recognized as one of the great Blues men of all time. After you finish your visit to the museum you can visit the Indian Mound and Museum, the Pope's Tavern Museum, the Renaissance Tower, and drive by the Frank Lloyd Wright Rosenbaum House, 601 Riverview.
If you don't mind wandering a little further, you'll find Birmingham, AL about an hour and a half away and Chattanooga, TN a little over two hours to the north east. A visit to Birmingham will give you a chance to see the Museum of Art, the Birmingham Botanical Garden, the Red Mountain Museum and Cut, the Birmingham Zoo, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, the Alabama Hall of Fame, and antebellum Arlington.
Chattanooga has the Hunters Museum of Art, the Tennessee Aquarium, Audubon Acres, the Battles of Chattanooga Museum, the Bessie Smith Hall, the Chattanooga African-American Museum and Research Center, the Chattanooga Regional History Museum, the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, and a whole bunch more neat stuff.
