I’d say it’s officially hot chocolate season. You might enjoy hot chocolate at the Galaxy of Lights or rinkside while skating in the park, but who’s to say you can’t enjoy hot chocolate on any other day?

We’ve got 8 spots where you can enjoy hot chocolate any other day. Plus, we’ve included places near each hot chocolate spot to stroll with your warm to-go cup in hand. Let’s get to it!

1. Turbo Coffee

This one’s a new option in Huntsville, and we’re loving it. In addition to their lattes, bowls and toasts, Turbo also whips up some delicious hot chocolate. Here’s where to fid them.

WHERE TO TAKE IT: Head over to Holtz Leather Company or Preservation Company to browse their beautiful local goods with hot chocolate in hand!

2. Cozy Cow
