Rock City will amaze you; it’s in our nature. Only six miles from downtown Chattanooga, Rock City is 1700 feet above sea level, with a 100-foot waterfall that cascades down the mountain and the famous Swing-A-Long bridge that spans nearly 200 feet. This self-guided tour gives visitors a birds-eye view from high atop Lookout Mountain. Rock City’s other features include Lover’s Leap, where you can “See Seven States,” the Fairyland Caverns, and multiple dining options. In addition, Rock City hosts numerous special events and festivals year-round.
