Mike and El may not be here in Huntsville, but we have more than enough Stranger Things vibes in the Rocket City.

If you’re like me and a fan of this iconic Netflix show, check out the top Huntsville spots that look like Stranger Things!

1. Lowe Mill

Lowe Mill’s industrial vibe reminds me of Hawkins School. It also slightly mirrors Hawkins Lab—just trade the upside down for the out-of-this-world art galleries.

Specifically Lowe Mill’s arcade

What better way to celebrate Stranger Things than by playing some old-fashioned arcade games? At Lowe Mill’s Starlight Pinball Arcade, you can set some new high scores—who knows, you might even beat Mad Max.

2. Campus No. 805

3. Maxwell’s Music

You can find the best Stranger Things jams at Maxwell’s Music. Grab your favorite 80s record, cook some eggos and play some Dungeons and Dragons.

4. Parkway Place Mall

Nestled in Parkway Place Mall is another arcade reminiscent of Stranger Things. Plus, you can make the rest of the mall your go-to hangout spot like Mike and his crew did in the show.

5. Downtown’s small town feel

Harrison Brothers Hardware reminds me a bit of the drug store where Will’s mom works. Even though Huntsville is much bigger than Hawkins, parts of downtown have that same small town feel.

Bonus: Strange…Noises?
