What a beautiful way to spend the day! Beautiful gardens and view from the mountain tops! I remember going as a child and enjoying the swinging bridge, lover's leap, fat man's squeeze, etc. But the views and how clean the ground were took my breath away. We had lunch on site and had a smoked pulled pork sandwitch and fries... More

We weren't expecting to see anything but rocks here but boy were we wrong. It is beautiful! There are so many plants and flowers and we loved all the gnomes and fairies in the little caves. You get to the top part and they have a lookout place where you can see seven states with amazing views. Rock City was... More

Rock city gardens is a wonderful family orientated attraction which the wife and I thoroughly enjoyed on our recent visit.. Taking just under one and a half hours to traverse the mile or so of passages and pathways between rock formations (with descriptive names such as "fat mans squeeze" - "thread the needle" and "lover's leap") presented little or next...

This place is beautiful, and it is great for kids and adults. I've been quite a few times, and I finally got my See Rock City bird house. I've heard from the locals that this lovely place is even more gorgeous in the winter. She said they must spend a million dollars on Christmas lights.

Fabulous botanical & geological wonders! Great family attraction on Lookout Mountain. Loved the view of 7 States from the Flag Court, the High Falls & Swing-A-Long Bridge.

I havent been here since I was a child. Sorry to say it hasnt been updated since then. But, then again that was kind of nice too! Everything was the same since the 80s. We had a great view at lovers leap and all the vendors there were extremely nice! If you have bad knees there are a LOT of... More

My wife and I visited rock city on September 3, 2014. We really enjoyed ourselves. Rock city is a great big park with walking trails through caves, and gardens, there's waterfalls, and lots of gnomes. Be prepared to walk more than you expected. The trails offer up lots of scenery. At one point there's an overlooked where you can see... More

only and i say only, if you have a five year old that likes fairy tales adn garden gnomes, would you even think about this place. Hokey, camp, kitschy, artificial gardens on top of a big rocky hill, with fake eagles, gnomes, piped music and a view you can get from other places on the same hill. Really? and the... More

I cannot describe my fury about the exorbitant amount of money I completely wasted on this place. I cannot for the life of me understand WHO would like this atrocity! For the amount of money I spent on a combo ticket to go this joke of a place and Ruby Falls, I almost could have gone to Disney World! It... More
