The U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville has edged out the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail to rank number one in visitors last year among Alabama tourism attractions that charge admission. It was reported that more than 509,000 people visited the center, which is celebrating the “Year of Apollo” to mark the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing. The previous number one attraction, The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail ranked second with nearly 505,000 visitors. It should be noted that the golf trail had one of its course locations closed last year for renovation. The Birmingham Zoo ranked third with nearly 496,000 visitors and Birmingham’s McWane Science Center was fourth with about 429,000. The attendance figures were released last month by the Alabama Tourism Department. Lee Sentell, who runs the Department, continues to do an outstanding job.
