So you may be thinking to yourself, “Self. I’ve never even heard of Huntsville, Alabama, how in the world do I get there?” Well, let me tell you, it’s probably a lot easier than you think.
I can only assume those choosing to walk here have at least a basic understanding of where their travels might take them. So, with that being said, let’s start with folks traveling via wheeled transportation.
Wheels aren’t your thing and you fancy yourself a free-spirit who prefers to ride the rails across this vast country of ours? Sadly, the only train service coming through Huntsville is of the commercial variety, but we can certainly get you into the neighborhood with train stations in nearby Birmingham (2 hours away), Anniston (2 hours, 10 minutes) and Tuscaloosa (2 hours, 15 minutes).
“It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane!”… Okay, you got me, it’s a plane and it is landing in Huntsville, Alabama. Huntsville International Airport (HSV) is the largest commercial airport in North Alabama, serving more than 1.2 million passengers annually. HSV is known throughout its 18-county service region for outstanding customer service, state-of-the-art technology and convenience. HSV has nonstop service to ten destinations, including: Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, New Orleans and two airports in Washington D.C. – Dulles and National. Airlines with service to Huntsville include American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, GLO and United Airlines.
Plus, it’s really pretty to look at.
Finally, if you’re traveling via rocket from low-Earth orbit, we are not able to accommodate you…YET! However, if our friends at Sierra Nevada Corporation have their way, that option may be in the not-so-distant future. SERIOUSLY!

As the lovely Oleta Adams once sang, “I don’t care how you get here, just get here if you can.”
