Huntsville

Where they invented the “Bang! Pow!” that sent us “To the Moon!” Some cities just have bigger dreamers than others. The Rocket City, famous for the U.S. Space & Rocket Center and its part in the race to the Moon, is once again blasting off. Continuing to attract the country’s best scientists and engineers, this beautiful city is also enjoying a renaissance. Restaurants, shops, craft breweries and other social hotspots are popping up everywhere and thriving.

Leave it to a city full of braniacs to turn an old school into the hottest social destination in town. Though it hasn’t been used as a school in years, many of its students can still be found wandering the halls of Campus No. 805. The curriculum has changed a little these days. Now the most popular classes are craft beer, sushi, pizza, and—for the jocks—ax throwing. You’ll still find the same old lockers, though. Only, now there’s a speakeasy behind them.
