It took us a bit to find the entrance and parking but once we did it was worth it. There were many people enjoy the night as we were. We went half way and them came back on the bridge.

We went too late to do much shopping but the bridge was pretty and the family had a nice time on it. Downside was that a dog or horse had made a nasty contribution and the owner had not picked it up

The mountain where Rock City is located is mostly residential, there is a B&B but downtown is the best place to stay because there is so much to see and do there.
