After much research and all the helpful information from this forum, our family has decided to relocate to Huntsville, however, my husband will be working in Culman. He will also be flying out of Huntsville International Airport several times a week. My question is - if we decide to live on the southeast side of Huntsville, say in Hampton Cove, is there a quicker way to get down to Culman without going on I-65, or is traveling across town not a big deal? He will be driving, when he's not away on business, regular business hours (7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.)

Hi! I live in FL but I grew up in Cullman. 65 is probably the quickest way from H'ville to Cullman, but you can also travel AL Hwy 231 to I 65 or to AL hwy 31. Check out the map. Have you already decided that you would move to Huntsville? Cullman is a great town. It is dry though. That means no alcohol sales. Huntsville is good too.

Yeah, that is at least an hour or more drive everyday one way. Did you check out other towns a little closer to Cullman or Cullman itself? If you lived in or around Cullman your DH could go to either H'ville or B'ham airport, Birmingham would actually be closer in miles. They have more flights in and out too.
Just curious.. What are you looking for that made you decide on H'ville?

We decided on H'ville because the drive north to Cincinnati, where our daughters live, is closer than driving from Birmingham. I'm afraid Cullman is too small for me. I need bars, restaurants, and movie theaters. Although, I've read Cullman is very pretty.

ahh.. you know inquiring minds want to know.. LOL.

Well, good luck in your house search. There is another way to Cullman but some are 2 lane roads. You would go 231 to 69 to Cullman. Depending on where you live in H'ville it might be a little shorter in miles but I doubt it would take any less time, although you would be going against the traffic.

Let us know..

I realize that you may have already made your decision....but....

If your husband is going to travel a lot by air, there is a huge difference between the Birmingham Airport and the Huntsville airport. The Birmingham Airport has non-stops to about 28 cities and will be much better for air service. I have traveled out of it for years and you have non-stop service to NY, Chicago, Dallas, Cleveland, Las Vegas, Louisville, New Orleans, Phoenix, Denver, St; Louis, Houston, Jacksonville, Orlando, Memphis, Tampa, Detroit, Cincinnati and quite a few others.

Southwest Airlines makes a huge difference for the Birmingham Airport. Huge.

Here's a comparison of non-stop flights from the two airports.

BHM - Birmingham International Airport : Flight Schedules : Non-Stop and Direct Flights (http://www.bhamintlairport.com/schedules-flights.html - broken link)

Huntsville International Airport

Southwest Airlines has a lot of 'one-stop' service where the plane is on the ground for about 25 minutes and on the way to another destination. NOT really a connection, just a quick stop. This makes the BHM airport even more attractive...see the Cities Served Direct on their website....All of the service out of Huntsville will be truly "connecting" where you must get off the plane and walk to another gate to get to your next flight....MUCH different than from Southwest. I have over 1 million miles on the major carriers: Delta, Northwest, United, USAir, Continental and Southwest. I'd take a Southwest city over a non-Southwest airport anytime....


Cullman is halfway between Birmingham and Huntsville. You can get to the Birmingham airport from Cullman in 45 minutes.
