“A good walking area tour”
Review of Twickenham

Twickenham
Ranked #15 of 79 things to do in Huntsville

Reviewed 22 April 2017

If you like the old 1800s area this is a good one easy walking cool sidewalks on a hot day. Not far off the square for meals and good parking for a couple dollars. We did about 2 miles of the area in about a hour and ran out of time before we had to leave for our bus tour at Redstone.

Twickenham is a lovely area full of beautiful, historic homes. The best way to explore it is on foot on or a bike! My partner and I quite enjoying riding through on our bicycles and admiring the homes.

My husband and I were on our way from the Von Braun Center to Monte Sano State Park. We made this detour through the neighborhood to see the homes. They were beautiful and maintained. Most had a small sign in the yard to give you the year it was built. .All were cared for and worth the detour. The neighborhood was easy to find, easy to drive thru and a pleasure to see. You can just drive up and down the streets on your own. Don't even need a map.

Too bad a map or website doesn't exist to get more info about each house as you drive or walk around. Don't be surprised if drivers get annoyed with you lol :) The courtyards of the homes are so quaint.

This is a lovely walking neighborhood in downtown Huntsville. The historic homes have markers and some have a little history write up, too. It's nice for walking or just driving through!
