The Alabama Tourism Department recently introduced a more convenient way to experience tourist attractions in the state with an “All-In-One Ticket” offer that lets tourists purchase a pass for multiple attractions, including several in Huntsville.
Without having to download anything, travelers can now purchase attraction tickets online to fit their trip.
Huntsville attractions included in the ticket
Three Huntsville attractions are among several in North Alabama included in the All-in-One ticket program:
- Huntsville Botanical Garden: Explore 120-acres at he Huntsville Botanical Garden. With stunning floral collections, inviting woodland paths, broad grassy meadows, aquatic areas, and more.
- Early Works Children’s Museum: Hear stories from the Talking Tree, play a tune on the giant-sized instruments at the Alabama bandstand and try your hand at building in the Kidstruction Zone.
- Burritt on the Mountain: This unique museum of regional history is located at the mountaintop home of Dr. William Henry Burritt. The remarkable 14-room mansion built in the shape of an X in the 1930s is insulated with 2,200 bales of wheat straw.
The Huntsville attraction passes also have some nearby favorites to extend your stay and check out as well:
- Cook Museum of Natural Science located about 30 minutes away in Decatur.
- Cathedral Caverns State Park located approximately 40 minutes away in Woodville.
- Jesse Owens Museum is just under a hour away in Danville.
- Ave Maria Grotto is about a hour away in Cullman.
- Rickwood Caverns State Park, located just over an hour away in Warrior.
- Tigers for Tomorrow Exotic Animal Preserve, Inc. is an hour and a half away in Atalla.
What else does the All-In-One ticket include?
Each ticket will allow admission to all attractions listed within the package. Each “All-in-One” is a special grouping of attractions within regional areas of the state, most offering one-, two- or five-day options at one low price.
The “All-in-One Ticket” grants one-time admission to all attractions listed on that ticket, for the time span purchased at a savings versus buying singly at each admission rate.
“Basically, you pay one rate, and you can take in as many attractions as you want that are participating on that ticket package.”Grey Brennan, deputy director of the Alabama Tourism Department
