We loved the riverwalk and bridge! It was so neat to see the river by foot. We went early evening so the sun was setting and lights made everything really pretty. This is definitely a worthwhile stop on your visit.

My two teenagers and I walked across the bridge to the North side. Some nice shops to poke around in. Girls took lots of photos on the bridge. Next time we will go to the cookie dough place.

The mountain where Rock City is located is mostly residential, there is a B&B but downtown is the best place to stay because there is so much to see and do there.
