wonderful place to walk thru like you're in your own little world. huge rock formations and nice pathways thru everything. lit up at christmas with an enchanted room of fabled characters built on a table of sorts to read about and look at. like the swinging bridge and just walking thru the rocks is peaceful.

It was very beautiful and my children loved the place. It was an awesome Christmas trip for the whole family. The plus was the "real " Santa Clause .

I have a pass & go as often as I can. I love this place!!!!!!! It is great all year round; especially at Christmas time. I really enjoy just walking & taking my time to just sit, look, observe, relax, & rest. I've enjoyed this place ever since I was a little boy. I hope to one day work there when I retire.

Rock City is beautiful, even on a dreary December day. The paths are immaculate and very well done. I had read reviews about how cheesy the gnomes are, but I thought they made a very pretty display under the black lights. I do believe the fairy tale room is very outdated -- my kids are into technology and not Little Jack Horner -- but it was a funny flashback to my own early-70's childhood. Overall, this is a very beautiful place that is fun to walk through.....definitely my favorite attraction in the area next to the Tennessee Aquarium. You will not be disappointed!
