“Lots of Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

My boyfriend and I went to rock city on a Saturday afternoon and it was so much fun. There were lots of great things to see and the view from the mountain was beautiful. I felt like a little kid again because there was so much to do and see when we were there. Oh and when you leave Rock City there's a Starbucks across the street :)

“Great for Everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Mother Nature on display, this attraction offers something for everyone. Couples and families alike can enjoy the scenic wonders or have a little playtime. Certainly a natural wonder not to be missed ! Convenient as well, open every day but Christmas Day.

“Great for the family vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I've lived in Chattanooga all of my life and finally visited. Great natural rock formations (including fat man's squeeze) and a beautiful fairy tail area complete with colored glass windows and elves. Might be a little on the cheesy side but you have to remember that this place has been around for a very long time. You can buy one of the famous Rock City bird houses in the gift shop.

“Rocks and more...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Rock City is wonderful to visit year round but Christmas lights are not to be missed. The children dance through the exhibits and get cotton candy, decorate cookies and have a GREAT time. They love to read the rhymes in the enchanted fairy tales section and point out all the story book characters. Fat man's squeeze delights the children and the flowers in the summer are lovely.

“quite a place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

what a neat place nestled in the hills near ruby falls. Quite a bit to see and paths to take. some of it probably needs a bit of TLC (black light area is tacky by today's standards) but still has an awesome view from lookout mountain. couldn't get the wife to go to lovers leap, but kids loved it.
we spent about 2 hours strolling around the grounds, then visited a great little coffee shop across the way. neat area!
