Things to Consider When Moving to the Rocket City

Things to Consider When Moving to the Rocket City

If you are moving to Huntsville, AL, the team at InTown Partners is here to assist as you change locations. Whether you are excited or apprehensive about coming to the Rocket City, there are many things to consider when relocating. Our team has taken the time to address the most common concerns when moving to a new city.  

The Job Market 

One of the biggest reasons to move to any new city is for a new job opportunity. Many relocate or are transferred to Huntsville for a job involving an engineering background or the military. If you fall into that category, the job market is fantastic for new Huntsville residents. If, however, you are the spouse or partner of an engineer who has followed a different career path, there are plenty of other employment opportunities in health, education, real estate, and more. 


If you have children, the education system is the next concern on your list for moving. Huntsville city schools such as Huntsville High, Grissom High, and Jemison High are excellent, offering wonderful STEM and art programs. For those who live in the Madison area, schools like Bob Jones and James Clemens will prepare your children for success. If you want to go the private school route, the Huntsville area has Madison Academy, Westminster Christian Academy, and Lindsay Lane Christian Academy. 


For those who are completely new to the South, you may be curious about the climate of Alabama. Be prepared for mild winters, rainy springs, and warm, muggy summers, as Alabama has a humid subtropical climate. Surrounded by the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the city of Huntsville can also bring windy days. 

The Culture 

Alabama citizens enjoy good food, good music, and good company. While there are restaurants that offer Southern favorites like fried green tomatoes, cheese grits, barbecue, and Cajun cuisine, the city of Huntsville is expanding its flavor palate with eateries that have German, Latin, Asian, Indian, and even Caribbean influences.  

Sundays may be quiet as many businesses in the area observe the Sabbath, allowing employees to spend the day in a house of worship or resting with family. The rest of the week, you can find many events such as dancing, happy hours, concerts, festivals, or watching the Havoc, Trash Pandas, or Huntsville City FC team play. No matter, what tickles your fancy, you are certain to enjoy your move to the Rocket City.
