Think back to your own childhood and you may have fond memories of going on a family road trip. Depending on your age, you may remember getting to watch your favorite movie in the minivan as you traveled down highways or you may remember cranking up the tunes as the whole family joined in the singing. Summer 2019 is a great time to reconnect with your family by going on a road trip from Huntsville.
There are many wonderful places to see animals in the Huntsville area. While you will not want to miss the chance to see the antelope, buffalo, a camel, ostriches, giraffes, a kangaroo, and tortoises at the Harmony Park Safari in the outskirts of Huntsville, if you are looking to get a little further away, then you have lots of choices including the Birmingham Zoo, Montgomery Zoo and Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo.
There are many beautiful waterfalls to head to on a road trip from Huntsville. Most of them are in the northern half of Alabama. Three waterfalls descend into a deep gorge at Arab. You can see waterfalls up to 300 feet across when you head to Lake Guntersville. Bring along your fishing gear when you head out to see DeSoto Falls as the fishing nearby is usually fabulous.
Alabama is home to some outstanding gardens, including the Huntsville Botanical Gardens, but if you wanting to get away on a road trip, there are several other fantastic choices nearby. The Charles Wood Japanese Garden and the Mobile Botanical Gardens are both fantastic places to visit. You may also want to consider heading to the Birmingham Gardens where you can view over 12,000 plants. If you are looking for a small city road trip, then Aldridge Gardens in Hoover where some fun planned activity is usually taking place.
Caverns have played a great role in Alabama’s early history. Thankfully, the state has chosen to open several of them up to the public as state parks, and they make a great place to go on a summer road trip. You may want to go to Cathedral Caverns State Park where the caverns’ entrance is massive enough to impress even the most reluctant traveler. You may also want to put DeSoto Caverns where in addition to the caverns, you can find 25 family-friendly activities to do with your crew.
Wherever you decide to roam this summer, you will be glad to return home when you live at the Moderne at Providence. Your family will have plenty of space to spread out, and friendly neighbors to tell about their road adventures. Large windows let plenty of light into these spacious pet-friendly units.
