Spend Your Labor Day in Madison County

Labor Day in Madison County


It’s 4:30 p.m. on a work day. Your eyes glance at the clock. You slowly gaze over the pile of work sitting on your desk; you sigh. Then – a ray of light. You see a date circled on your calendar. It appears to be a holiday. But, could it be? Yes, it could – it’s Labor Day! You have a long weekend off! So… how will you spend it?

We’ll tell you how.

You’re going to enjoy yourself. You’re going to relax. And you’re going to have fun. You know how I know this? Because you’re going to spend Labor Day in Madison County, Alabama.

But what exactly will you do in Madison County? Well, we’ll tell you that too!


Explore Ditto Landing


We could write an entire blog about all the exciting things you can do at Ditto Landing. (Oh wait, we already did.) Basically, if you enjoy water, sun, fun, or probably a combination of all three, then you can find what you’re looking for at Ditto Landing. You can also check out rowhuntsville.com for more resources on water sports in Madison County.


Take a hike

In nature, we mean. Madison County has plenty of trails to choose from – whether you head to the Land Trust of North Alabama (the Harvest Square Nature Preserve is pretty new, and pretty awesome!), Monte Sano State Park, or one of our urban trails, getting outside is the ideal way to recharge those batteries after all that time spent in the office.

Splash around at Southern Adventures

Did you know that Huntsville has our very own water park? Southern Adventures doesn’t just have water slides, though. They’ve got it all – bumper cars, arcade games, go-karts, a climbing wall, the list goes on and on. But you better hurry to get in on the H2O action – Labor Day is the last day for the water park in 2016.



Say what? NACK (North Alabama Canoe and Kayak) is the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful Flint River without having to get all wet. (But you can get wet if you want to. Whatever floats your canoe.)


Do good while you have fun

Play a round of golf on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail September 3-5 and your free time could help those most in need. RTJ Golf Trail will donate $10 to the American Red Cross South Louisiana Flood Relief from every round of golf with a green and cart fees paid.

If all else fails…

Head to the Northeast Alabama State Fair! It’s coming to town September 1-5. Did you know that it’s scientifically impossible to not have fun at the fair? It’s been proven.
