    Huntsville, AL, which has earned the nickname “Rocket City”, was incorporated in 1811 as Twickenham, but was renamed shortly thereafter to honor one of its founding citizens, John Hunt. Resting on the banks of the Tennessee River, the city was an important rail shipping point and could boast of being one of the leading cotton and munitions producing areas in the South. With its rail and river access the city was a strategic point in the Civil War.

    Huntsville's population was 180,105 as of 2010, with its metropolitan area about double that. The city relies heavily, directly and indirectly, on the aerospace industry for employment.

    The U.S. Space and Rocket Center, the Redstone Arsenal, the Centre of Marshall Space Flight and the Cummings Research Park are also situated within the premises of Huntsville.

    The city with its roots so deep into spaceflight and especially ballistic missile technology earned a “Red Star” designation from the Soviet Union during the Cold War. This meant that in the event of a nuclear war between the two super powers, Huntsville would be high on the target list for the Soviet missiles.

    Summers in Huntsville are hot and humid. Winters are mild with high temperatures rarely below 40.

    Huntsville has many parks, golf courses, several historic areas, and several professional sports (minor league) teams to serve as diversions. The town is serviced by many major fast food and casual dining chains and hotels. There are plenty of local restaurants as well.
