Rock City

As you travel south on I24 in Southern Tennessee or north in northern Georgia, you can’t help but notice the signs telling you to “See Rock City”.  Opened in 1932, Rock City is located just six miles from Chattanooga, TN.  It  was a popular honeymoon destination in the 40’s and 50’s and was known at the time as the Niagara Falls of the Southwest.

Rock City boasts ancient rock formations, gardens with over 400 native plant species, and a “See 7 States” panoramic view. You can also take an unforgettable journey along the Enchanted Trail or experience the magic of Fairyland Caverns and Mother Goose Village.  These man-made caves are meticulous displays of storybook and fantasy figures with vivid underground lighting effects.

This attraction is not handicapped accessible and there are also quite a few narrow passageways that may not be navigable by larger guests.  The rope bridge may be a bit scary for some folks as well, especially if you get there at the same time as a group of kids who inevitably will attempt to make it sway as much as possible.  This attraction gets rave reviews and most think that it is well worth the price of admission.
