Out of the hire car in Alabama and into outer space!
A drive through the North with your car rental will take you through Huntsville with its US Space and Rocket Center, which is certainly worth a visit. This adventure park offers an insight into the world of the galaxy. Here you can feel everything that astronauts experience in space. For example, take a ride in the giant centrifuge and feel what three times gravity is like. Or let yourself be launched to 42 meter high in 2.5 seconds. In short, anyone interested in space adventure shouldn’t miss this opportunity!
Golf clubs in the back of the hire car and away you go...
Follow the Interstate 65 from the capital to Decatur, and next the Interstate 565 until Huntsville. An additional tip for all golf fans: driving up to Huntsville one passes two golf courses designed by the international player Robert Trent Jones Trail. The Robert Trent Jones Trail is an Alabama State golf project, encompassing a total of 10 golf courses, spread throughout the state. The project was highlighted by various renowned newspapers and magazines and draws many players from all over the world. So, be a professional and use this opportunity to play on the best courses in the world! All destinations are easily and comfortably reached with car hire.
