Rock City

Rock City is really cool and definitely worth the stop if you have time. Being able to see 7 states at once, the Lovers Leap waterfall, and the Fairyland makes this a must see!

Fairyland Caverns

Rock City

Wonderfully engineered paths twist and turn over top of each other, and we didn't notice that we'd climbed the hill to the lookout! Fairytale Cavern was the best -- crazy neon paint on just about everything. Loved it.

Rock City

This involves a lot of walking. It would be best to wear comfortable shoes. They will take your photo before entering and you can purchase at the end ($20-$35).
