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.

Rock City Gardens reviews
This place is a must see! My 9 year old niece had a blast. The views are breathtaking. The path is mainly shaded. Our favorite stop in the Chattanooga area. more »
There's so much to explore and look at. Waterfalls. A view of Seven States. Wondering Paths. Ice Cream. Miniature scene-after-scene. Cool place just to search and find weird, whimsical, and... more »
Loved Rock City! Definitely a place to visit with your pets and kids of all ages! Loved how pet friendly it was! It was about a 90 minute walk through but loved the gnome theme! Definitely recommend going on a sunny clear day so you get a great view! Enchanted lights was very cool! One of the best walking light shows I've ever been too! Only complaint is yes it's a little pricey but worth it. Pet friendly but no place to sit inside with your dog to eat. Very tight areas where it would be hard for larger people to get through. Not stroller friendly.
It's so peaceful and beautiful and this history is enchanting! It's the fairy tale garden the founders had hoped it would be! Plus their grill there is amazing! Actually one of the BEST meals I had during our ENTIRE stay! I was very impressed with it, especially it being a quick service! Nope it was delicious!! For sure bring the family and take in the beauty of 7 states at once!!
