We can recommend this highly enough. Gardens, rocks, waterfalls, lookout, tight squeezes, gnomes and the best fairy wonderland anywhere. All ages will love Rock City. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

I love rocks. Always have. This was such a special place with lots of charming history. Loved all the rock formations and the vignettes of fairytales tucked within.

I loved it! The views and scenery were amazing! There were parts that may not be little kid friendly and they might have to be held or you can take the alternate way around. It was a little pricey but I would do it again.

You probably wouldn’t want to spend less than 1 hour otherwise it just wouldn’t be worth going, but you could probably have lunch up there and take 3 hours. 1 hour would be a quick walk through, 2 hours would be a... More
