Rock City Description
You parents knew of the barns painted with the admonition "See Rock City," and it's one of those iconic American attractions that is a must-see. A suspension bridge, gardens, stunning natural rock formations, and incredible views add up to a unique experience. During holidays the whole thing's done up in twinkling lights for a fairy-land atmosphere.
Babies: Babies are best toted instead of strolled around Rock City; there are plenty of hikes and walks that can't be navigated by a stroller.
Toddlers & Pre-K: Delight them with a gnome hunt in the gardens and looking for deer in Deer Park -- they'll be sure to see more than a few.
School-Age Kids: Hold on -- the adventurous ones will undoubtedly try to swing the swinging bridge, and they'll have plenty of fun joining in the gnome hunt with little ones.
Pre-Teens & Teens: Even the most affected of teens will be in awe of the mountain-top views, ponder their crush at Lover's Leap, and get a kick out of squeezing through the tight spaces in the Needle's Eye.
- Plan your time. Rock City is one of those attractions where the time gets away from you. Plan accordingly.
- Buy a barn. There's a plethora of painted barns to pick from in the gift store. C'mon, you've got to have one.
- Buy the package. The combination tickets for Rock City, Incline Railway, and Ruby Falls will save you some money if you plan to see all three.
