traveling to the Rocket City and making the trip-planning process easier than ever. The CVB publishes weekly #iHeartHsv blog articles highlighting information pertinent to potential Huntsville/Madison County visitors – everything from how Huntsville got the nickname Rocket City to which shops offer unique souvenirs to commemorate your Huntsville visit, or where to find the best burger in town. The majority of the blog content is written by a team of Huntsville locals, giving readers authentic insight into the culture of the city. “Visitors want to experience the true heart and soul of our destination; they’re interested in visiting the big attractions, but they also want to know the hidden gems that locals frequent, like a hidden alleyway full of public art or an unassuming restaurant with great Southern food. That’s what makes the #iHeartHsv blog such a valuable resource – it’s first-hand information from people who know best, our own Huntsville residents,” said Kristen Pepper, marketing manager for the CVB. ■
