Best Places to Live in Huntsville

If you’re considering a move to “The Rocket City,” it’s time to take a look at the best neighborhoods to consider. As your Huntsville relocation experts, Armstrong – Huntsville has all information you’ll need to pick your new home-sweet-home.

Huntsville has been voted as one of the best places to live in the U.S. more than once, and when you take a stroll through this beautiful city and meet the people that make it so amazing, it’s easy to see why. Despite rapid growth, “The Rocket City” has kept its classic small-town appeal. Each area of Huntsville has its own unique characteristics that can become a perfect fit for anyone considering a big move. Let’s take a look!

Downtown/Five Points

The Five Points Historic District of Huntsville is a busy metropolis in the heart of the city. Walkable downtown streets are home to art festivals, live music and the weekly Thursday Green Street Market where residents can grab local-grown groceries. Downtown Huntsville is home to some of the best food the city has to offer, including many bars and breweries. The laidback, friendly attitude of residents in this area, and the easy access to a long list of local parks and attractions, like the Huntsville Museum of Art, make the area a great location for singles or young families to call home.

Hampton Cove

Hampton Cove, a beautiful area situated between Huntsville-proper and Monte Sano Mountain, is best known for its comfortable suburban setting, perfect for families. Residents can enjoy local sights like the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Huntsville Botanical Garden and, of course, the Monte Sano State Park. Hampton Cove has homes for any family ranging from townhouses to million-dollar mansions, which allow residents to enjoy the gorgeous natural backdrop that the Huntsville area is known for.

Northwest Huntsville

The home of Huntsville Parks and Recreation galore! Families flock to the housing market in Northwest Huntsville largely because of the great prices and local amenities. This sprawling neighborhood is full of parks, recreation and community centers, libraries and more that draw the entire community together. Residents can be found taking the family to the local Roller Time Skating Rink, bowling with friends at Pin Palace Lanes or taking the littles for a fun day at Star HB Farms. This community is best known for its family-centric and friendly atmosphere in everyday life.

South Huntsville

Nature and culture come hand-in-hand in this corner of Huntsville.
