This was our first visit to the Rock City Gardens. Great time, plenty of walking and stunning views. The drwarf area was very cute. Definately a place to visit and visit again. We enjoy the value of the ticket prices. It was also very nice...More
Love this place. Went in July was super hot. The climb through the rocks was a nice cool temperature. Hot at the top. You can bring in and carry own water I suggest you do. Nice gift shop. Best was just walking around and enjoying...More
I traveled with my family here years ago and we only went to Ruby Falls and the Incline Railway. That was a mistake. If you can only do one thing in the Chattanooga area, go to Rock City!
Our family had a great time and...More
Our family had the absolute best time here! We arrived right as the Gardens were opening (8:30 AM) and spent probably 3 hours here, which was just the perfect amount of time to get through everything! The weather was beautiful, and we really enjoyed the...More
I wanted to see the waterfall but had no idea there was a whole rock garden there as well. At first I thought the entry fee was very steep with $27, but there is actually more to the experience than I thought (although I still...More
Interesting history of the garden and a fun walk through the rocks. There are a couple of tight spots that will only accommodate more slender people. It can be a little disconcerting, but it is safe and interesting. You can view several states from the...More
We did rock city after enjoying Ruby Falls. It was lots of walking but there is so much to see and do you don’t really realize it. I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was fabulous. I definitely want to go back and take...More

One of our favorite places on this trip! The views are gorgeous. So many neat pathways to follow. Lots of things for the kids to do as well. They were able to mine for gems and climb a rock wall for a small fee. I...More
I can't remember the exact cost, but I am thinking it was about $20 per adult. Also, the cost may vary with the time of the season. There is quite a bit of walking, so it might be hard for a 2-year old. There are a few... More
I can't remember the exact cost, but I am thinking it was about $20 per adult. Also, the cost may vary with the time of the season. There is quite a bit of walking, so it might be hard for a 2-year old. There are a few cute stone bridges with no guard rails, only a small stone wall (less than 1 foot high) on each side, so hang on to that 2-year old. There are a few loops of trails and you end up back were you started, so you could say it goes in a circle.
