First of all there is a hill there. Second of all, there are giant rockets on it that you can see from miles away. Also there are a zillion chain resturants and many mighty fine office parks. There is even (dun, dun, DUNNN!) an art museum in downtown. And, just wait until Christmastime when 12-ft tall lighted figurines pepper the residential neighborhoods with their awesome, albeit unnerving, glow of holiday cheer. Yee hohoho!!!!
Huntsville lost out to Austin for the capital way back in the day, which means that it could now be the live music capital of the world and all that stuff, but totally isn't, though you can go to the Stardust Room on whichever night and hear seriously subpar jazz improv shit.
Oh well. Live by the Ville, die by the Ville. Word is bond.
