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.

Loved this place. Passed by it so many times as a boy. Majestic rocks unbelievable views. Small cavern. On top of breath taking look out mountain. Worth the price of admission. This place is 10 star if i could give it to them. Oh try the swinging bridge if you dare:)
This place was gorgeous and had some amazing views. We have been traveling the country side over the past 4 months and thought this would be a cute place to check out. The one downside I would say would be the price. We did go on labor day, so it was more expensive because of that, but still it was over $100 dollars for a family of 5. We got there right at 9:00, so we basically had the place to ourselves, but as we were leaving at around 11 it was a different story. The place had definitely started to fill up. Luckily, we were able to enjoy a relaxing stroll without the crowds. The views were lovely, and my kids thoroughly enjoyed the swinging bridge. It was a magical place, I'm not sure if I would have enjoyed it as much later in the day with the crowds. I would definitely suggest an early arrival.
