A must see while in Chatanooga. Trail walk was moderate and not accessible by wheel chair. Would not recommend for anyone with walking disabilities. View from Lookout Mountain was grand.

I was not expecting to like this place as much as I did. The temperature there was much cooler than in town. I enjoyed the rock formations, plantings and view. I also like the jewelry artisan's work that is for sale.

We really enjoyed our trip to Rock City. Our children are 6 and 10 and they both enjoyed the experience. I remember going as a child and I thought it was going to be cheesy, but it wasn't at all.

Great place for all ages. Spectacular view of the waterfall and scenic walk among the natural boulders. Fairy Land Cavern is a great delight for everyone, especially for little children.

The colorful exhibits in the rock caverns and crevices are one of my very first childhood memories! "Fat Man's Squeeze" and the hanging bridge I can remember since I was a small child so it was extra fun to take my three year old there this year. We had a blast and enjoyed touring the beautiful gardens and caves. Recommended... More

Great place to visit, but the narrow winding mountain roads with no shoulder were more adventure than I wanted, especially in the rain!

In the dictionary, next to "overhyped," it should say, "See Rock City." Of course, that's their motto, the phrase plastered all over bird houses, barns, and billboards throughout the southeast within 200 miles of Chattanooga. Unfortunately, the attraction doesn't live up to the hype. Rock City/Lookout Mountain (they have a number of separate listings on this site, but they're the... More

First the good stuff, the rocks and the walks are eye candy and quite fun. There is an awesome waterfall and stellar views across several states. They claim seven but as Virginia an Kentucky are 120 miles away you will be lucky to see them. There is also a kind of mini rock cavern to walk through. All worth a... More

I loved all the little nooks and crannies this place had to offer. From the waterfall, to the lookout over 5 states, to the hokey little gnome garden, my 6 year old and I loved it here. I can't wait to return!

I lived three years in Chattanooga and never went to Rock City. Having gone there on my most recent trip, I can say it wasn’t worth the wait. Basically it is an Appalachian Botanical Garden hiking path of about ¾ of a mile. A bit pricy in comparison to other options. Wear comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. I would...
