“Rock City Lookout Mountain”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

It was OK, interesting rock formations but would call it a family outing rather than mature adults. Wasn't keen on the little 'gnomes' all around.

“a fun day”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

You've seen the old barns advertising Rock City.............now's your chance to go there. I have always loved rocks and rock formations and I was not disappointed. From the top you can see 7 states. Children (of all ages) will love the Fairyland with displays set up under black lights.

“Keep Going Back for More!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

LOVE Rock City!! We have been several times. The last 2 times, we went during the Enchanted Lights, which they have for the Christmas season & keep on display through New Year's Eve.
It's a place the whole family will enjoy any time of the year. And there's plenty of exercise, walking the rock trails with the rock stairs/steps along the way. If you haven't been, make plans to go soon!!

“delicate garden of rocks”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

The rock city reminds me of the Suzhou gardens in China- they use rocks to build a lovely garden and make people feel enjoyable. Trail with rock rails, caves, waterfalls, underground fairy tale world, seven states, comfortable music- all makes the 1-hour tour life-refreshing.
