Young Professionals

Downtown is where most young professionals start their search. It’s the heart of the social scene in Huntsville, with the greatest concentration of restaurants, bars, theaters and cultural options. You also have plenty of condos/apartments so you can have a really fun walkscore lifestyle.

Five Points


One of the cooler neighborhoods in Huntsville is the Five Points Historic District. It’s just a mile from downtown and half a mile to Monte Sano Mountain so get a nice balance of access to the heart of the city but a walk from great hiking trails. It also has its own fantastic food options and bars so you don’t have to head downtown to get a refreshment.

Five Points


Five Points is the heart of the LGBTQ+ community in Huntsville. Beautiful historic homes, boutique eats and shopping, and plenty of arts, galleries and local culture make it ideal for those looking to start or support LGBTQ+ friendly businesses. Don’t sleep on Huntsville overall as a city that loves and supports the LGBTQ+ community. Huntsville is perhaps the oldest city in Alabama with a history of openly supporting LGBTQ families and the Rocket City Pride event is a great example of how the city demonstrates that support.



Blossomwood is an amazing neighborhood for families. It sits right next to Downtown so you can experience an active lifestyle, but it also is right below Monte Sano mountain so raising your kiddos in the great outdoors is right in your backyard. It also has beautiful homes, incredible tree-lined streets, and some of the best public schools in the city. If you want to get a bit more breathing room then check out Jones Valley. It’s centered around the Jones Family farm and offers the most breathtaking views in North Alabama. It has its own restaurants and shopping but for many the hiking and great courses are more of the draw.
