I wanted to stop here due to the use of Rock City as a setting in the novel American Gods. Shyed a bit at the $20 price tag, but it totally worth it. Very charming, minimal kitsch (gnome theme), uncrowded and cool in early morning....More

I think you can go the short back way and just see the view, but I would call ahead to make sure. You certainly cannot go,through the main part of it unless you are mobile because there ar a lot of stairs and tight spaces.
