      The southern Appalachians stretch across this portion of the state. It’s where some of music’s biggest stars were born and where others were made after they recorded their hits in the local studios. Here, you can gaze up at the cosmos from scenic vistas or go learn from those who’ve actually been there themselves at the US Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville.
