The signs of summer are everywhere. Kids are out of school and are looking forward to their next camp getaway or first adventure of the summer. Instead of making the kids wait for the weekend to take a road trip, make the summer rock with a weekday trip to Rock City on Lookout Mountain. While we are known for special events like our Summer Music Weekends and Rocktoberfest, taking a day during the week is the perfect time to come explore our gardens and 4,100-foot walking trail. Besides, you know that the summer is hot, and it’s always cooler on Lookout Mountain.
Exploring this natural wonder without the weekend crowds will give you a different perspective on Rock City and what a marvel it is. Lover’s Leap has a different atmosphere when it’s only you, your family, and a few others admiring the magnificent view of seven states. It is one of the most popular photo spots in America and has been since Rock City was founded in the 1930s. Be sure to snap a picture with your phone or bring your best camera for a truly memorable photo that you’ll want to share with everyone.
Navigating the gardens is a different experience as well. You and the kids can take a little more time on the 180-foot swing-a-long bridge and explore Fairyland Caverns a little longer. While a weekend with us at Rock City is always exciting, full of music and activities, a weekday visit creates a more relaxed environment and lets you view the gardens in a different light.
As you enjoy your weekday adventure at Rock City, don’t forget that Café 7—on Lover’s Leap—or Big Rock Grill are the perfect places to recharge and get the most out your visit. If you need an extra pick-me-up, Starbucks is right outside of the main entrance across the street, and the kids will certainly love a stop at Clumpies Homemade Ice Cream, with three locations to choose from.
