Soak up a panoramic view of seven states and a waterfall from Lover's Leap, one of the lookout points at Rock City Gardens. Walk among massive ancient rock formations and more than 161 hectares (400 acres) of plant and animal life to reach the lookout point. Travel carefully along the Swing-A-Long Bridge, a suspension bridge providing a view of the Chattanooga Valley. The Fairy Tale Kingdom exhibit at the end of the garden tour showcases hundreds of fairy tale characters, like Cinderella and Mother Goose, inside the rocks by shining lights on them. Parking is free at this facility, and all tours are self-guided.

The walk to the seven state view was worth the wait. The weather was warm, so the view was very clear. The attractions along the way were entertaining. Take some binoculars-spectacular show of nature. more »
Good place for a great workout. Lots of steps. It is a truly amazing place. I absolutely loved the fairyland caverns part. They made the fairy tales, I grew up on, come to life. We spent about 4 hours in there and it was worth it. Especially the view from lover's leap. On a clear day you can see seven states which is breathtaking.
Came from Oklahoma and saw the Rock City Gardens at Christmas time and it was so pretty and so amazing!! Everyone there was so nice! Definitely great for kids, couples (how I went), and friends!! Will definitely be back! Edit Came back in the spring with my daughter and she loved it! Such a beautiful place and fun area to hang out and explore
