I didn't expect to appreciate this place quite as much as I did. I guess I'm someone who likes more extreme activities - rollercoasters and speedboats - but I needed to break up my journey from Atlanta to Nashville and decided to stop off at...More

Finally after seeing “ see rock city” for over 50 years I go to Chattanooga and visit. I hate that I waited so very long. I have asked locals about this place over the years “ just a bunch of rocks”....wrong ! I was pleased...More

Beautiful picturesque scenery, safe walking paths through cave-like passages as well as beautiful treed gardens. The 7 states view is the best, and the fairy tale area is so quaint. It's a definate must see.

Fun meandering paths that lead to Lover's Leap Lookout. On a fair weather day you'll be rewarded with fantastic views - don't forget your camera! Not too breezy up top the day we visited. Lots of parking and easy to find.

Didn't know what to expect before entering but we were pleasantly surprised by the layout. You start off walking a normal cement path listening to the soothing background music like you might hear in a yoga class. The path twists and turns and you eventually...More

Somewhat aged area. Needed to be painted and updated but it was a very nice trip on a warm day. The views are breath taking and the lunch they served was very good. The staff was excellent

I love visiting Rock City. It's so beautiful! The gnomes are the best part- it's so much fun to find all of their random hiding places.

You can. When it comes to close areas, they have walkways to by pass. We saw several strollers.

Wear good shoes, and same hills. Know there is this extremely tight cave. You can’t be heavy set or scared of small places . It’s so tiny and I think it’s called fat mans cave. I struggle going through it pregnant

I'm not sure if there is a senior discount for an individual ticket but if you go through AAA or get a combination ticket like someone already mentioned, you would definitely get one! It's well worth a visit I promise!!
