We were in the area and had heard about the Enchanted Garden of Lights so we decided to check it out. We had been there the year before during October so I wasn't sure if it would be worth it and I was pleasantly surprised. They did a great job with the lights and the Peppermint Hot Chocolate and Mulled... More

The view was great and the cave trail was fun but it was way overpriced for something you can find all over the state. They should really think about remodeling the fairy land as well. The psychedelic colors and 70's decorations is a little dated.

We came here two weekends before Christmas. We came at 3:30 to do the day time tour and upgrade to the lights. It was very beautiful! We then had about an hour to get a drink and sit down before the lights. We got in line at 5:30 and waited til 6 to go in (among the first to enter)... More

The Enchanted Garden of Lights was my favorite Christmas light experience of any city, anywhere! The teenagers who have been employed as guides in the park are helpful, friendly and upbeat! Everyone I saw was smiling! There were activities - like cookie decorating to take advantage of, if you wanted to. We did- and had a great time doing it!... More

Great nature and great kitsch! Wonderful long distance views! It made me want to paint "See Rock City" on my roof. One of the many reasons Chattanooga is one of my favorite cities.

Very, Last of the Mohicans! One of the best tourist places I've been to. Kitschy, classy, and fab, all at the same time. I'll be back!

Amazing! We went for our honeymoon and the views and scenes were awesome. Definitely earned some brownie points on this one, going back tonight to see the Christmas lights.

We have been to Rock City a number of times over the past few years. We always love the senery and the view off the Mountain. This is the first time that we got a chance to go back and do the Christmas lights. The experience was a must see and I hope that we get a chance to be... More

I love Rock City! It is a natural wonder that has been used to create a beautiful botanical garden. The best thing to me are all the interesting natural rock formations, stone bridges and lookout points that are part of the pathways through the gardens. Another thing that I like is that I can take my dog on a leash.... More
