    Tuscumbia Spring Park

    In downtown Tuscumbia, AL, approximately 1 hour from downtown Huntsville, lies the beautiful Spring Park. My family recently visited the park after touring Helen Keller’s birthplace, Ivy Green, and was pleasantly surprised at what this park had to offer. Since 1919, the park has provided a beautiful setting with many attractions, including Cold Water Falls, the largest human-made natural stone waterfall. The waterfall is hidden directly beside the parking lot, allowing visitors only a short, accessible walk. This waterfall, unlike natural waterfalls, is ever flowing, with approximately 4,320,000 gallons of water passing over the falls each day, making it perfect to visit when waterfalls are hard to come by.

    High Falls Park

    One of my favorite things about Huntsville is its proximity to many other uniquely beautiful areas of nature. Huntsville is an easy drive to some well-known hopping places such as Nashville, Chattanooga, and Georgia. Locals can make day trips to some fantastic surrounding areas. One of my favorite day trips is to High Falls. High Falls Park is the most beautiful waterfall located in Grove Oak, AL, approximately 22 miles south of Lake Guntersville. This makes it the perfect day trip to experience. The waterfall is 35 ft tall and spans over 300 ft depending on the weather. Upon arrival, make your way to the general store to sign in.…

    The Cook Museum of Natural Science

    I recently had the pleasure of joining my kindergartener on a field trip to the Cooks museum in Decatur. The last time I visited the museum was before the pandemic, and I was still amazed by the facility and all that they had to offer. My son and the rest of his class all seemed to have the best of time getting to play and learning new facts about Earth. The Cook museum of Natural Science is a state-of-the-art natural science museum located downtown Decatur, Alabama. The facility host 62,000 square feet of hands-on experiences and exhibits for people of all ages to explore and learn about nature and science.…

    Strawberry Picking at Brown Farms

    One of my family’s favorite thing to do each year in the spring is to pick strawberries at Brown Farms in New Market, Alabama. They allow the customers to pick their own strawberries, making it a fun adventure for the entire family. Brown Farms has been serving the Huntsville area strawberries since 1950.  The family farm has over 15 acres dedicated to just fresh strawberries. Brown Farms is a perfect place to spend the day picking your own fruit or purchasing the strawberries they have already picked in the store. They also have an amazing jump pad on which children can play on. Be sure to stop inside the store…
