Fayetteville, TN, and Huntsville, AL Professional Review and Guide
"Fayetteville is the town that made the “slawburger” famous. Fayetteville also offers the only sanctioned harness racing in the state during the annual Lincoln County Fair in September, and Fayetteville... Host of Christmas Past in November. Huntsville, originally called Twickenham, was forever changed when 118 German scientists arrived in 1950 to develop rockets at Redstone Arsenal. Since then, NASA and Army engineers have continued to experiment in the space arena. The Army conducts its space and missile defense research development at the Strategic Defense Command in Cummings Research Park.
Huntsville’s high-tech workforce is the third largest in the nation. The German influence can still be felt, with restaurants specializing in cuisine from that country and a civic center named after scientist Wernher von Braun. For a taste of times past, September brings Old Fashioned Trade Day, to the square in Huntsville. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Nashville. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
