Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Resort/Hotel

Is Huntsville the only city on the RTJ Golf Trail that does not have an adjacent hotel? I am not a golfer, but it seems that there would be a market in Big Cove for another hotel, especially one proximal to the Hampton Cove Golf Course. The Hampton Inn in on 431 seems heavily used, and it would be nice to have another option in the area, particularly for people that are interested in playing golf in one of Alabama's ...more »

Downtown Veterans Museum

With Huntsville's military connections, it would seem that a first class veterans/military museum would be popular and really could boost tourism.

 

The current veterans museum is fine but very cramped. It needs much more space and visibility. I wish a new, spacious museum could be built downtown (perhaps very near the veterans memorial).

Space- Themed Transit System (Rocket-City Transit)

Coming from the Atlanta area (Cobb County, Marietta) it is easy access to ride Cobb County Transit (CCT) to a MARTA station that will transfer me to ...more »

Gondola Public Transportation System

A gondola system would provide much needed public transportation between major nodes of Huntsville. The implementation would be easier (and likely cheaper) than any type of train due to the reduced ground footprint. In addition, this could become an attraction of its own. There are a few examples of this type of public transportation. Green power could even be incorporated to run the stations.

Laser Show on West Side City Hall

I'd like to see a laser show similar to that at Stone Mt, GA, be done on the large west side of the City Hall Building. I envision it being sponsored on a weekly basis during the "outdoor" months by one of the major Huntsville corporations. A possible scenario could be: 1. Pre-Coulmbus Indians 2. John Hunt and pioneers 3. Cotton comes to Huntsville 4. Civil War 5. Reconstruction 6. Spanish American War and Buffaloe ...more »
