And while road tripping across the country may be exciting, there’s nothing like visiting some of the great attractions that Sweet Home Alabama has to offer. After doing some research, the polls seemed to be unanimous as far as the best of the best. So whether you’ve visited these places growing up, or are just looking for a change this weekend, take a look at our Top 5 places to go!


 

1. The U.S Space & Rocket Center- Huntsville, Alabama

After opening its’ doors in 1970, The U.S Space & Rocket Center has had over 16 million visitors.

They also take pride in having Pathfinder, the world’s only full-stack space shuttle display.
